  1. I had almost spent about a week to get my Graphics Card ATI Radeon HD4350 working on my Mac OS X Lion. There were a few links which I checked on insanelymac, hackintosh as well as tonymac's site but all were failing. Hence, I started the hit and trial method which seemed to be the last option for me before I completely gave up. Anyway, below you will find the guide that worked for me. IMPORTANT NOTE: Please for the love of god, take a complete backup of your important data. If possible create a spare partion of your working OS X Lion and then clone it. Please don't ask me how to clone your Mac. I'm sure you will be able to find a lot of tutorials on the internet. However for cloning I personally prefer CCC which stands for 'Carbon Copy Cloner' I have also attached the files that worked for me, which you can download below: EDIT: RE-UPLOADED THE FILE BELOW, THERE WAS A KEXT MISSING IN EARLIER ZIP FILE... YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE NEW ATTACHMENT BELOW: ATIRadeonHD4350KextsNEW_AlexMathayes_.zip NOW let's begin. 1. Shutdown and Install the Graphics Card ATI Radeon HD4350 and boot NOTE: Boot with normal mode. If the normal mode doesn't work then boot into safe mode. And if safe mode also doesn't work, then remove the card and continue with the steps below. I however, did not have to boot in safe mode, I just booted in normal mode with my Graphics card already installed. 2. Open the 'EVOenabler and ATY_init' folder, Open 'Applications' folder in a seperate window. Select both the files in 'EVOenabler and ATY_init' folder and drag them over to 'Kext Utility' found in the 'Applications' folder in order to install them automatically with permissions also being repaired automatically. 3. Open 'ATI4350' folder and copy paste the file to 'Extra/Extensions' folder. 4. Open the 'Controllers' folder and again 'Applications' folder opened in a seperate window, select all the files from 'Controllers' folder and drag them over to 'Kext Utility' in order to install them automatically with permissions also being repaired automatically. 5. Open 'Kext utility' again by double clicking it, type your password and let it repair the permissions automatically. NOTE: It's better to run the 'Kext Utility' last time just to be on a safe side that the permissions gets repaired. Although you are repairing the permissions each time you drag the kexts to 'Kext Utility'. 6. Restart and at the bootloader, boot with -v. You should see ATI4600Controller might not load (Thats normal), you should also see ATY_Init with card 0x- and random few numbers, this indicates that the installation was successfull. VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: I had a very tough time installing this card and had almost given up. But I beleive in 'try, try... untill you succeed' hence in case the above procedure does not work and after installing the card you get a BLANK GREY SCREEN with just a big arrow, you can then perform the extra step 7 (Which I had to do since, I was getting a BLANK GREY SCREEN with a big mouse pointer). 7. (THIS STEP IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO GET A BLANK GREY SCREEN) When performing the 2nd Step from above, Open the 'EVOenabler and ATY_init' folder and ONLY SELECT 'ATY_Init.kext' and drag it over 'Kext Utility' in order to install it. Then you can continue with the Step 3. Thats it, your Graphics card should be recognized as 'ATI Radeon HD 4600' when you open the System Information. Hope the instructions were easy to follow. I have only tested this procedure with the DVI Cable connected hence, I would not be able to comment on the VGA method, I'm sorry. ALL THE VERY BEST. ATIRadeonHD4350Kexts_AlexMathayes_.zip

  3. HURRAY..... F#CK YEAH I have the graphics card installed..... finally after so many hit and trial methods. I am writing down the procedure that worked for me: TRIED Baraka's Method (METHOD 3) but with minor modifications 1. Opened the EVOenabler and ATY_init folder, Open Applications folder in a seperate window. SELECTED ONLY 'ATY_init.kext' folder Instead of both 'ATY_Init.kext' and 'EVOenabler.kext' and dragged it over to 'Kext Utility' found in the Applications folder in order to install it automatically with permissions also being repaired automatically. NOTE: I was getting a BLANK GREY SCREEN if I installed both the kexts (ATY_Init and EVOenabler) hence, only installed ATY_Init. 2. Opened ATI4350 folder and copy pasted 'ATI4350.Fix.v2.kext' file to Extra/Extensions folder. 3. Opened Controllers folder and selected all the files from Controllers foler and dragged them over to 'Kext Utility' in order to install them automatically with permissions also being repaired automatically. 4. Opened 'Kext utility' again by double clicking it, typed password and let it repair the permissions automatically AGAIN to be safe. Restarted in verbose mode and VIOLA the Card was recognized and fully working with Quartz support. YES YES YES..... F#CK YEAH
  4. Recently My Graphics Card ATI Radeon HD4350 had gone for replacement (therefore I never had any chance to test it with Snow Leopard) and in the meantime I went ahead and installed OS X Lion using the onboard graphics. After getting my Graphics card I installed it and then started my system. OS X Lion booted up all fine but the drivers were missing. So far these are the tutorials that I have followed in order to get the card working or trying to install the drivers. Method 1: ANARCHiNTOSH's Method (InsanelyMac) http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=236869 Method 2: Talal's Method (Hackintosh) http://www.hackint0sh.org/f213/273857.htm Method 3: Baraka's Method (Tonymacx86) http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=...48&start=50 But nothing has worked so far. I tried using the VGA cable and tried installation procedure but failed. Started fresh again and even tried using the DVI cable but again failed. THE RESULTS: 1. I get a BLANK GREY SCREEN if I follow Method 2 and Method 3 (Using the VGA Cable) 2. After installing I start in verbose mode and then get a completely BLACK BLANK SCREEN (it also says 'No Input' on monitor) (Using the DVI cable) I start the system in verbose mode each time to see what might be going on. Regardless of any method I follow I get these 3 lines in the verbose mode which I think may be causing the concern. Kext com.apple.kext ATI4600Controller might not load - Kextd is currently unavailable ...... ...... ...... ...... ...... ATY_Init: Starting ATY_Init: Card 0x954f was posted ATY_Init: quiting for card 0x954f Could someone please try to help me out with this.... EDIT: SOLVED: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=265241
  5. [HOW TO] ATI HD 4350

    Can any of this work with OS X Lion??? Recently my graphics card had gone for replacement and in the meantime was using the onboard graphics. Also I installed OS X Lion 10.7 through Mac App Store. It installed and is running all successfully. Now when I got my card replaced with a new one, I tested it on my OS X Lion by starting into verbose mode first with the card installed. The system booted all fine and reached my Lion desktop. After which I followed 2 tutorials, One from hackintosh site and another from tonymacosx86 site but with no results. All I get is a mouse cursor on a grey screen and nothing more.... Please tell me a procedure that might actually work with Radeon HD4350 on OS X Lion.
  6. Now that we have the USB Pen drive ready to install Lion and that I have completed the Lion installation successfully.... Is there a way to make a bootable DVD out of the USB Pen drive... and keep it as a backup installation disk. Meaning what if we copy all contents from the USB Disk and burn it to a DVD.... Will that dvd be bootable and can it be used as an install disk????
  7. Recently I went ahead and tried to install Mac OS X Lion on my Dell Latitude D620. Earlier I tried installing Snow Leopard numerous times and each time I failed. But with OS X Lion the installation started smooth and completed smoothly. Everything works absolutely flawlessy on my Dell Latitduee D620 Except for some of the drivers. 1) The Sound does not work cause there's no driver installed. 2) The Video is installed but the proper graphics card has not been (Which is NVIDIA in my case) 3) The LAN & WAN don't work (ethernet and wireless drivers are also not installed) 4) The Keyboard and Mouse/trackpad/mousepad also does not work. Currently I have to connect USB Keyboard and Mouse in order to work on my D620. I have gone through some links and see something called 'EDP', what is that exactly? Is it some kind of post-utility which will help me install the drivers or something else. OR can anyone guide me in the right directtion on how to get the above 4 things working...Please cause I'm already loving LION so very much on my notebook
  8. Hurray! I got it installed..... HELL YEAH... After so many tries I finally got it What I did was I created a 1 partition on my USB drive (MBR Partition) and then followed all your steps. In the end checked this link: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;gopid=1725541 From the above link... Downloaded the boot file (As said by: kdawg and replaced it with the file that was already there after performing all your steps on the USB PEn drive) Restarted and VIOLA was able to boot using the USB Pen drive (Since had selected MBR as partition format) Completed the installation and now I have a successfully working LION and has the same speed as my Snow Leopard. Thanx to all your guys and above all, ABOVE ALL THANX TO INSANELYMAC With respect to the above step... I'm currently booting using the USB Pen drive, And then select the Lion partition and it boots up fine with no issues. Now if I install Chameleon-2.0-RC5-r1083 and select everything in the options... Will I get chameleon preferences/options in my system preferences window OR not? (Something like the below screen) Because earlier in my Snow Leopard I had an option for chameleon which was in the system preferences window. From there I could easily change the graphics options such as what resolution I need, and other startup options that I wont have to write at F8 or modify any system file. that utility window or should I say chameleon window was able to do it perfectly. Please let me know quick or if you could let me know of some utility or package that would bring back those chameleon options in the system preferences.... It would very much appreciated.
  9. My HDD is partitioned as GUID... Currently I have the 1st Partition (GUID) with Snow Leopard, 2nd Partition with Windows 7 which ofcourse is active.. 3rd partition I have the clone of my working SL (GUID again) I have the latest chimera bootloader through tonymacosx86's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] which starts the system. Then I get choices from which I can the OS I want to start and from there I can either boot to SL/Windows/SL Clone I have already updated my Motherboard with the latest modified Bios and the AHCI options is currently active. As said before even if i try start Lion Installation from any partition on my internal HDD (10GB) it gets stuck at the same place and with the USB Pen drive the same thing. I have tried with both the flags -x -v with same results............ Any other suggestions?????
  10. I tried following the guide step by step.... But each time whenever I installed chameleon onto the USB Pen drive the system refuses to even start and just gets stuck at the Motherboard logo.... Anyway I tried proceeding without installing chameleom bootloader to the Pen drive and the system boots up fine.... shows all my currently installed SL/Windows/SL Clone in the chameleon bootloader along with the Pen Drive which also gets detected. (Again if I dont install chameleon onto the Pen drive and follow all other steps) I try to boot using the pen drive in verbose mode to start the installation of Lion (Verbos, because I wanted to know the progress and where its getting stuck).... Each time it gets stuck at the below screenshot: Even if I follow all the steps and this time create a new partition on the internal HDD.... even then it gets stuck at the above screen... Waited almost 30mins and still nothing happened. I don't know what I'm doing wrong even after following every step carefully
  11. I tried with the USB Pen drive... I performed all the steps except installing Chameleon on the Pen Drive. If i do that the system just gets stuck at the motherboard logo and if I remove the Pen drive the system boots fine and goes to the chameleon bootloader which is installed on the HDD along with Snow Leopard and other partitions. When I perform all steps except chameleon and then try to boot with the USB Pen drive still plugged to the system it boots fine and comes to the chameleon and the USB Pen drive gets recognized. Now, When I boot using the Pen drive (I normally do it using the -v so that I can see the progress) itloads a lot of information and then finally gets stuck on the screen mentioned below. It never gets past that. What can be going wrong. I tried to do all steps on a system partition as well but the same thing happens. it gets stuck the same place as above. P.S: I tried following MaLd0n guide again without installing the chameleon on the Pen drive.... same result as above
  12. I thought I would actually wait for your reply before trying this procedure. I created a new partition of 10GB on the HDD (Since I don't have a 8GB pen drive at the moment) and tried to follow all the steps but got stuck at step 8 and forward. I can run the installer but can't select the 10GB partition as the location. Its giving me the loaction for the 10GB partition but there's an exclamation mark over that partition. Please tell me what to do..... Or would I require the 8GB pen drive for your procedure to work correctly????
  13. can you tutorial be followed in case if i dont have a USb Pen drive and decide to create a new partition of about 10GB and follow the entire procedure.... but instead of USB pen drive I'l be using the newly created partition????? please let me know
  14. How did it work? Could you please explain the procedure in depth... I'm trying to install Lion and get stuck on this screen ... It never goes anywhere from there:
