  1. I had this issues too, Try changing your SMBios to a later model - does this problem happen when you boot from the USB or is it after installing?
  2. Help for ATI 4570 QE/CI

    If you're booting from the USB your clover installation on your HDD will have no effect. The rebooting issue seems especially odd, If you're getting a black screen after applying the Shrike patch, this is good. It (probably) means it's loading the patch, but you've got the wrong values. I'm pretty confident we'll get there with your setup as it's very similar to mine, however, I've got no experience with this on Mountain Lion, only Mavericks. It took an awful lot of time however! I'd personally recommend doing a clean install with Mavericks because it seems faster than ML - but that may not be possible if you're using old kexts to get your system running. To get the values right you'll be doing a lot of rebooting and trial and error, I used clover to apply the patch making this easier, and reduces the possibility of error with kext permissions and whatnot: <key>ATIConnectorsController</key> <string>4600</string> <key>ATIConnectorsData</key> <string>020000004000000009010000020100030200000000010000090100002001020200040000040300000001000010000101</string> <key>ATIConnectorsPatch</key> <string>020000004000000009010000120100071000000010000000000100000010010100080000040200000001000010000202</string> ^ I put this inside <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key>, it searches ATI4600Controller.kext for the string in ATIConnectorsData and replaces it with the string in ATIConnectorsPatch. The ATIConnectorsData string is the unmodified Shrike framebuffer personality Alex gave you. (make sure you reset to the vanilla kexts! It's important that you can find the ATIConnectorsData Shrike string in ATI4600Controller) It's worth learning how you create your own framebuffer personality, it's actually relatively simple when you get into it and will make it much easier when you're trying to figure out which numbers to change! This post explains things pretty well http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/252061-mobility-radeon-hd-4650full-resolution-with-qe-ci-working-on-internal-lvds-screen/?do=findComment&comment=1655182 So a port configuration, like for LVDS, breaks down like this: (CCCCCCCC) Contector Type (AAAAAAAA) ATY,ControlFlags (FFFF) Features (????) unknown (TT) Transmitter (EE) Encoder (HH) HotplugID (SS) SenseID CCCCCCCC AAAAAAAA FFFF ???? TT EE HH SS Most of these we can be sure of, we're only really interested in changing SS, EE, maybe TT and the last two of features, --FF The post I linked roughly explains how to find these values, but I had to do a lot of searching on the forums. Mine should look pretty similar, for LVDS it's 02000000 40000000 0901 0000 12 01 00 07 and I've not changed the others. (HDMI & VGA) Also, it's worth looking at these a lot when changing clover config. http://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Configuration#Config.plist-structure# http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/282787-clover-v2-instructions/ especialy this section http://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Configuration/Graphics I hope it goes well, good luck!

    Ahh! I guess that's why my kexts didn't help, I'm running mavericks, in mavericks they changed names a bit from mountain lion

    You shouldn't need to download ATIRadeonX2000, I found it was already on my vanilla machine, despite not being named in the same fashion as the others
  5. Help for ATI 4570 QE/CI

    Thanks, I did manage to get it working in the end, although there's still some bugs, OpenGL functions (not sure which) seem to caused the machine to freeze, so some OpenGL apps are not working, but everything else seems perfect! It's a modified one, but I didn't mention I fiddled with some values since then, here's what I'm using now: 02000000 40000000 0901 0000 12 01 00 07 10000000 10000000 0001 0000 00 10 01 01 00080000 04020000 0001 0000 10 00 02 02 I think It's possible it could be your kernel cache, try adding -f to the boot arguments

    Try Alex's framebuffer, I think mine is slighly different. Are you using an external monitor?
  7. Help for ATI 4570 QE/CI

    The fakeID should be fine, It's one of the two supported by AMD4600Controller (you can see it in the info.plist) If you've got full resolution you're getting close, do you have some files named ATIRadeonX2000.* in you System/Library/Extensions folder? I didn't but I think that's because I accidentally deleted it a while back, replacing them solved my issues I'm attaching the AMD4600Controller, it's setup for my card but It may work for you. AMD4600Controller.kext.zip
  8. Help for ATI 4570 QE/CI

    I've managed to get full resolution and QE/CI! Here's the important parts of my config, rather than editing AMD4600Controller.kext's plist, it's better to spoof the device id because ATIRadeonX2000.kext is required for accelerated graphics and also depends on the device id. Spoofing the device id so AMD4600Controller.kext recognises it: <key>FakeID</key> <dict> <key>ATI</key> <string>0x94901002</string> .... Next, graphics settings: <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <dict> <key>Intel</key> <false/> <key>ATI</key> <true/> <key>NVidia</key> <false/> </dict> <key>VideoPorts</key> <integer>2</integer> <key>FBName</key> <string>Shrike</string> <key>LoadVBios</key> <true/> <key>InjectEDID</key> <true/> <key>VRAM</key> <integer>512</integer> <key>PatchVBios</key> <false/> <key>DualLink</key> <string>0</string> </dict> I've attached my config for reference but it won't work on your machine without some changes. It's possible to also patch the framebuffer personality from the Clover config, this'll make the system more resilient to updates! 1002.9553.0301.00E0.vga.rom.txt config.plist.zip
  9. Help for ATI 4570 QE/CI

    I'm following this thread trying to also get my 4570 running under Mavericks (thanks so much for your help Alex!). I had the same boot problem - it turned out Clover's default SMBIOS was setting the mac up as an older MacBookPro that didn't support Mavericks. Try adding -v to your Clover boot arguments (in config.plist, add -v to the <string> below <key>Arguments</key>, mine reads <string>npci=0x2000 -v</string>). If your issue is caused my the same problem, then you'll see "this version of mac os x is not supported by this platform" next time you boot. The fix is easy, add <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>ProductName</key> <string>MacBookPro5,1</string> </dict> to the end your config.plist file, above the last </dict> I hope it works! Not to hijack the thread, I have a question about creating the card profile - I've been reading up about it and I think I understand most of it, I'm not certain: Using DarwinDumper I get this for my VBios ATOM BIOS Rom: SubsystemVendorID: 0x1043 SubsystemID: 0x1b32 IOBaseAddress: 0xd800 Filename: f83s0901.m92 BIOS Bootup Message: M92M2-XT Asus F83SE DDR2 500m/680e ASID:A270110.T07$ PCI ID: 1002:9553 Connector at index 0 Type [@offset 45494]: VGA (1) Encoder [@offset 45498]: INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC1 (0x15) i2cid [@offset 45556]: 0x90, OSX senseid: 0x1 Connector at index 1 Type [@offset 45504]: LVDS (7) Encoder [@offset 45508]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY2 (0x21) i2cid [@offset 45579]: 0x16, OSX senseid: 0x7 Connector at index 2 Type [@offset 45514]: HDMI-A (11) Encoder [@offset 45518]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY (0x1e) i2cid [@offset 45602]: 0x91, OSX senseid: 0x2 Which is different from most because the connector at 0 is VGA and at 1 is LVDS - the reverse of peppeuz does this mean I swap the rows in my personality? 10000000 10000000 0000 0000 00 10 01 01 #VGA 02000000 40000000 0900 0000 12 04 00 07 #LVDS 00080000 04020000 0000 0000 10 00 02 02 #HDMI-A
  10. Thank you so much, I've been at this for hours - It was so exciting to finally see the NTFS drives appear in disk utility My machine is an ASUS F83Se, SiS 671 chipset Radeon Mobility HD 4570 graphics, running 10.9 mavericks prepared by the myHack app. I had to tweak a few other things to get the usb installer to boot however, At first it would with 'still waiting for root device', this was fixed by passing USBBusFix=Yes alongside -v -f when starting up Second, bluetooth kexts caused the boot to hang, I just deleted all 3 bluetooth kexts to solve. Lastly, it seemed to stick at DSMOS has arrived, passing GraphicsEnabler=No solved this one.
  11. Can I install osx 10.6 on my pc?

    Hey, I've found people tend to read these posts and ignore them because they can be quite tricky to answer (mainly because it's rare people will have the same set of hardware). Your best bet is to use the search feature on this board and just put in your individual components and the odds are you're going to find people posting about that hardware and their trouble and successes. As for installing Snow Leopard, that might not be the best idea because it's pretty undocumented in comparison to 10.5 which i would recommend. Having just 1 HDD is not a problem, you can dual boot any operating systems - you just need to google how. Heres one tutorial i quickly found but there's others better http://www.digitmemo.com/articles/658/howt...ot-setup-guide/. You're issues are going to be finding drivers for your graphics card, but with enough research it shouldn't be too hard. Your RTL8139/810x should run out of the box and i'm not too sure about your your Medion AG P4MRS350L
  12. iPC installed but shows no signs of life

    post all you hardware specs and once your graphics/audio kexts are properly installed it should boot with no problems, Safe mode works because it runs on pretty much software rendered graphics (i think)
  13. Ok yeh it seems to be totally safe on AMD running voodoo 5 with osx 10.5.6 (iPC)
  14. Anyone tried it on an AMD through the apple software update?
  15. ATI Radeon X1000 for deviceID 7147

    Thanks soooo much! with mine i had to install also the Natitx1300 kext "Get hold of NatitX1300.r1v1.Installer - files.filefront.com/NatitX1300r1v1Installerzip/;7790813;/fileinfo.htm install that and DESELECT the stock ati drivers for 10.4 and only install the Natitx1300 kext. Repair permissions, reboot and rejoice (if all went well!)"
