    ATI HD 5770

    Hi FKA, I did a new install and the S/L/E is Vanilla with the exception of my Realtek NIC card. As far as the E/E I only have fakesmc and JMicronSATA runing 64bits. I used the latest Chameleon and Kabyl's boot files. Do you think I should try VoodooHDA? I did try it in my previous install, but it did not work. On this new install, do you think that although the Sapphire card does not need it to enable HDMI the HIS card may enable HDMI audio with VoodooHDA?

    ATI HD 5770

    First, thanks to FKA, Chrshelms, and Toleda for the help. I wanted to reply sooner, but I decided to test everything I could think of before posting. I verified all the changes you guys suggested and here is what I found: To check the address of my graphics card I ran as FKA suggested lspci -nn and got the following output: 00:1c.0 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation Ibex Peak PCI Express Root Port 1 [8086:3b42] (rev 06) 00:1c.5 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation Ibex Peak PCI Express Root Port 6 [8086:3b4c] (rev 06) 00:1d.0 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation Ibex Peak USB Universal Host Controller [8086:3b36] (rev 06) 00:1d.1 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation Ibex Peak USB Universal Host Controller [8086:3b37] (rev 06) 00:1d.2 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation Ibex Peak USB Universal Host Controller [8086:3b38] (rev 06) 00:1d.3 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation Ibex Peak USB Universal Host Controller [8086:3b39] (rev 06) 00:1d.7 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation Ibex Peak USB2 Enhanced Host Controller [8086:3b34] (rev 06) 00:1e.0 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation 82801 PCI Bridge [8086:244e] (rev a6) 00:1f.0 ISA bridge [0601]: Intel Corporation Ibex Peak LPC Interface Controller [8086:3b02] (rev 06) 00:1f.2 SATA controller [0106]: Intel Corporation Ibex Peak 6 port SATA AHCI Controller [8086:3b22] (rev 06) 00:1f.3 SMBus [0c05]: Intel Corporation Ibex Peak SMBus Controller [8086:3b30] (rev 06) [color="#FF0000"]01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: ATI Technologies Inc Unknown device [1002:68b8] 01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: ATI Technologies Inc Unknown device [1002:aa58][/color] 03:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.

Switching it to PEGP address 0x0003000 would at least list the HDMI entry on the System Profiler Audio (Built In). Of course, although it was listed there the System Preferences showed a blank window in the Sound Preferences. I went a bit further a booted into windows and found the following: Not sure if the pic above confirms anything or not, but I just gave it a shot. But the story continues... I decided to fetch me another card. I wanted to find out if I was going or if it was my system that was hosed. I read that Sapphire was working out for a few people, so I grab the last Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 my local Microcenter had in stock. Basically the same identical specs but a different brand. I went ahead and plugged it in but no video under frame buffer Uakari. I then tried Vervet as other people seemed to like that one, but no HDMI video... DVI yes. I tried different frame buffers, until Baboon gave me video and audio thru HDMI. SUCCESS! Well not quite. The idea was to get the HIS HD 5770 working. I plugged the HIS back in and tried all the primate frame buffers I found. These are the results: Alouatta – no HDMI Baboon – no HDMI Colobus – KP Douc – KP Eulemur – no HDMI Galago – KP Gliff – KP Hoolock – no HDMI Kipunji – no HDMI Langur – no HDMI Uakari – HDMI video / no sound HDMI Vervet – no HDMI I tried both PEGP addresses just to be sure, but both 0x00010000 and 0x00030000 gave me identical results I then tried to go a bit further. I extracted the bios from the Sapphire with the intentions of flashing the HIS with the latter ROM. I managed to flash it, but the card would not display any video and the PC would not boot. I tried even ROMs from the same card brand which I found on the Powerup site, but all gave a black screen and no boot. I changed the SSID and VID but no joy. I had to flash it back to the stock ROM just to bring it back to life. Now, I am stuck. I am beginning to think that this card is not a Reference ATI board. I think HIS managed to modify it and coincidentally broke OSX's capabilities to route HDMI audio. In Windows 7 it happens to work fine, but I truly don't know what else could be the explanation. One thing I noticed that in OSX, the HIS is listed different in the System Profiler. The HIS is listed as ATI Radeon 5700 serires while the Sapphire is listed as ATI Radeon 5770; not sure if the latter is meaningful, but it seems that Kabyl's bootloader and OSX think these cards are different. Fast forward to tonight and am at a point where I have ran out of ideas. What do you guys think? Try Kabyl's useatirom flag? Contact HIS support and sweet talk them into sending me another ROM to try? Dump the HIS card on ebay (out of the 30 day return window) and keep the Sapphire (within the 30 day return window)? Anything else? BTW, for people interested in this post and the exact cards, here are the links: http://www.hisdigital.com/un/product2-533.shtml http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/p...101&pid=341

    ATI HD 5770

    Hi Guys, Back on this site after quite some time. Excellent work and my congrats to everyone. I have read all 51 pages about this card and have a couple of questions I haven't been able to answer. I have been able to get my HIS 5770 and P55M-UD2 up using Tonymac's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and Kabyls method. However, I can't get audio thru HDMI for the love of Steve. I get video just fine with Uakari, and I can even see the HDMI port under the System Profiler Audio (Built in); unfortunately, under System preferences there is nothing listed. I came across my System Profiler to find out that my card is not getting picked up by the PCI Cards section. I ran lspci and confirmed that OSX thinks there are no PCI devices present. Another curious fact is that on some other posts I have seen screen grabs where peoples' cards are listed as HD 5770; mine however is listed as HD 5700 Series. I have a hunch this maybe related to my audio not working, but again I am far from being an expert and the lack of information maybe just cosmetic... I do see some references on the ioregistry. I would appreciate some ideas on overcoming this hurdle. I have included some screen grabs, DSDT and IOregistrydump below. Cheers. Graphics.tiff PCI.tiff lspci.tiff dsdtbackup.aml.zip ioregistry.zip

    [TOTALLY VANILLA] Retail Snow Leopard

    I am getting random KPs... sometimes when restarting/shutting down and once while booting. I did the update thru the software update in the apple menu. It may have something to do with my power savings settings because I can not get my Hackintosh to wake up from sleep, but I'll have to check the logs with more detail to find out what's causing it. In any case, can anyone share their bios settings for a Gigabyte EP35-XXXX?

    [TOTALLY VANILLA] Retail Snow Leopard

    Great guide I got everything up and running on a EP35C-DS3R v2.1. If anybody needs an error/warning free DSDT for this board let me know. One observation: The 2_SnowLeoInstaller script tries to copy com.apple.boot.plist from the scripfiles directory... but it isn't there. It did not cause any problems, so I assume the line was left there from a previous version of the script. For bonjour, I am using the ifconfig solution, but I don't really feel to happy about it. If anybody knows of other "cleaner" solutions please post the links.
