  1. ATI Radeon HD 4650 - any support QE/CI?

    first say thanks to svenmike !! used the ubuntu disk to extract the ati rom file. (xfx ati 4650 1GB 2 x DVI) now i installed os x 10.6.5 with tonymax [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 2.4.1 and chameleon RC5 prerelease. (preregrine) after that i modified the ati4600 and ati2000 kexts with the ID of my card. put the extracted, renamed rom file to /extra and modified the boot plist for ati rom in extra. restart ! everything works fine now !! full resolution, and full speed witch cinebench. so the framebuffer should be right ??? isn't it ?? how can i see if QE/CI ??? but the main problem is now, that the screen keeps black when i wake up from sleep mode !! what can i do ??? thanks for any help !!
  2. thanks to spawntastic help !! i bought nearly the same hardware, and i was really surprised, that it works better than all the other supported hardware i built in the past. i started to do everything like spawn posted 01 aug ([url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] etc) (place network kexts to S/L/E) with my nvidia quadro fx380 it started out of the box !! later i removed the the NullCPU kext and the LegacyAppleRTC kext because geekbench results gave me 1000 more and the microtec cpu cooler is strong enough to keep the xeon under 50 celsius. now i installed everything for my ATI 5770 (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?s=&showtopic=205802&view=findpost&p=1546077) now everything works fine except the sleep mode. after i changed the boot file to "baboon" it works ! the hole procedure costs me 3 hours and now it is 100% like a mac !! here you can find all necessary files KEXT_etc.zip
  3. cost me a lot of time to find the simplest way to get the rev.2 fully working. the audio controller, the 8111E ethernet controller without any sleep problems and a short startup time. tried first the cakewalk method, but it couldn't make me happy with rev.2 no sound, no network and a slowly feeling. only the board was recognized correct. so i used the best of two methods ! i took the DSDT file from the cakewalk installer(http://puru.se/), and tonymacxs great [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. i installed a fresh 10.6.0 on my hd. with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] supported (cd) as bootloader i started my new system. (http://www.tonymacx86.com/Public/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-Supported.zip) ejected the bootloader and insert my previously burned 10.6.4 update combo. (Mac OS X 10.6.4 Combo Update) did the update. NO restart. now i started [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ([url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url])from tonymacx and installed only the DSDT file which i took out of the cakewalk (X58A-UD7) installation. restart ! fast boot !! nice benchmark (geekbench 9700) now i had to install two kexts in the S/L/E folder the realtek r1000.kext (think it's from psystar) and the older voodoo had kext from tonymacx. removed the apple hda kext. after that i started kext utility. finish !! everything works perfekt !!!! full 64 bit !! only one little cosmetic thing, i don't get the right FSB displayed in the system profiler, and i forgot the flag to change it in the simbios plist. anyhow no problem cause the board has QPI instead of FSB AudioNetwork.zip AudioNetwork.zip AudioNetwork.zip
  4. 4870 sleep / blackscreen problem

    maybe somebody is fighting with the same problem i had... i tried 2 different boards until now: GA-EX58-UD4P and GA-EX58-UD5 and 2 different graphik cards: CLUB ATI radeon HD 4870 1GB and Saphire Radeon 4870 1GB with both graphik cards i had many sleep problems... tried many different kext extensions but nothing works for me... at least i removed the batery from the board and started again with the genius KAKEWALK installer, used the Build 10C2234 OSX installer from the new 27" imac, changed only the AHCI mode in the BIOS ......and surprise...surprise.... everything works out of the box !!! (with QE/CI open GL...) goes down to sleep and wake up again !! i think you have always problem with new hardware... but for me the best decision is EX-UD5 and the Radeon 4870
  5. i built a perfect working machine with kalkeway installer. (genius!!!) now i start wit a new one with GA-EX58-UD5 board and Saphire ATI radeon HD 4870. so i thought everything should work the same perfect way. but this time it's sleep doesn't work !! i tried many things. went back to i386, installed evoenabler, sleepenabler, atyinit.......and ..and...and... no way !!! has anybode some helpfull ideas ??????? thanks for your answer !
