  1. XFX R9 270X UEFI - Clover No Boot

    Okay, so let me try to understand your issue. You are booting normally with no panics, and ultimately you reach a black screen? If this is the case the card is compatible and just needs frame buffer modifications. I gave up on my 270 and picked up a GTX 970, so if you happen to have the same model I do (R9-270X-CDFC) I would be little help. I've read in a few places that newer Xfx cards need cross flashing / modified vbios, but on my card both resulted with failed boots, or just bricked the card.
  2. XFX R9 270X UEFI - Clover No Boot

    I found out that my XFX card just isn't compatible with OSX with out modifying the bios. I've done this and bricked the card a few times. Not sure why, but this card doesn't seem to like being cross-flashed. I also found out that this is one of the few 270X cards with Samsung vRAM, with a very new (2015) UEFI bios. The card is back to stock, and is running normally again. I decided to quit on this build for now. I'll pick up a GTX 970 in the near future to get everything up and running again. Anyways, for those that tried to help, thanks.
  3. XFX R9 270X UEFI - Clover No Boot

    I think I tried that a few weeks back. Maybe I did it wrong, oh well here's a clover extracted DSDT. If it's not to much trouble can you tell me what it is I need to patch please. I actually wrote that response to be kind. I've already done this, and I'm 100% sure I've done it correctly. Every suggestion given to me so far I've done before I even asked for assistance. Asking for help is a last resort for me. DSDT.aml.zip

    Same results. Tested with patching/loading on and off, just to be sure. Edit: Decoded Vbios & added it to first post.
  5. XFX R9 270X UEFI - Clover No Boot

    2 mDP, 2 DVI, 1 HDMI. Vbios dump is attached to my first post. Edit: using HDMI, but also tested both DVI ports. MY monitor doesn't have a Display Port, so I can't test those. Card model is R9-270X-CDFC
  6. XFX R9 270X UEFI - Clover No Boot

    No distro, this is a vanilla clover install. My OS has absolutely no modifications, everything is in my EFI partition.
  7. XFX R9 270X UEFI - Clover No Boot

    Same results. Tried that with loading & patching bios both enabled, and disabled. Halts at "GPU Hardware VM is enabled" doesn't do anything after that.
  8. XFX R9 270X UEFI - Clover No Boot

    I know, but it doesn't boot. It just refuses to boot unless I use safe mode or that fake ID. I've tried every other combination. The closes I've gotten to boot 0x68101002 was to use a bios in the /rom folder from another card. It just black screens.
  9. XFX R9 270X UEFI - Clover No Boot

    Are you serious?! Oh wow I'm an idiot... I'll test this out when I get home, thank you for the info. Edit: Well that worked. 68181002 didn't work, but 69111002 did. Now to figure out how to get full acceleration. config.plist.zip
  10. XFX R9 270X UEFI - Clover No Boot

    Okay, I've tried everything with this card. I've read every guide on here, and probably everything else I've been able to find online. Done everything from injecting DSDT, to Framebuffer port mapping. Even tried loading other bioses with Clover /rom. I've been working on this for days, and I can't come up with anything. Clover loads up fine, no kernel panics, everything seems to go smoothly, and then it just hangs, and becomes unresponsive. The only way I can get the system to boot is with safe mode. I've attached a Vbios dump, and GPUZ screen shot. So if someone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Before anyone asks, this system works fine with a 7770. This is on 10.10.5, but this card hasn't worked on any version I've tested. It's also a vanilla clover install that works fine with the 7770 installed.

    Can't exactly just ignore it every time that error message comes up it freezes at boot, I have yet to get by that message.
  12. ATI HD 5770

    From what I understand the "ATY_init: Card 0x68b8 was not posted" error means you device is not listed in the ATI5000Controller.kext, and from the looks of it we have the same or a similar card since we have the same device ID, I've looked for 68b81002 inside one ATI5000 file and I'm pretty sure I seen it, but I could be wrong.
  13. ATI HD 5770

    I read somewhere that for the 5770 you need 2 displays connected to the DVI ports to get it to work, I only have one so I have to hold off until that bug is fixed. The installing ATY_Init alone situation sounds much like what you get when you have none of the kexts installed at all. Always try and boot in verbose mode (-v) so you can see what's causing the crash.
  14. ATI HD 5770

    Okay can someone with a XFX 5770 1028MB (Vendor:ATI (0x1002) Device ID: 0x68b8) please explain how they got this to work, I've been working on this for a few hrs and all I get are panics and blacks screens. This is everything I have tried so far: Installing everything to System/Library/Extensions + pfixing, arch=i386 -v -f (black screen, stuck, or sometimes "No Device 68b8 listed"(I'm sure I seen 68b81002 in the ATI5000.kext) ). I also tried installing the ATY_Init.kext file to my Extra/Extensions folder and everything else to the System/Library/Extensions folder (Locks up at verbose(-v) screen no panics). I've tried installing just the ATY_Init, ATISupport, & ATIFramebuffer files to S/L/E(black screen or no device listed). I've pfix'd every time and cleared the kext cache with no favorable results. For anyone doing this and getting stuck as I am, just boot with -s -v GraphicsEnabler=No mount -uw / cd /System/Library/Extensions rm -R ATI5000Controller.kext rm -R ATISupport.kext rm -R ATIFramebuffer.kext rm -R ATIRadeonX3000.kext rm -R ATIRadeonX3000GA.plugin rm -R ATIRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle rm -R ATIRadeonX3000VADriver.bundle rm -R ATY_Init.kext Reboot This way you don't have to a fresh install to try again. -------- Relevant components: Core i7 930 x58A-UD7 XFX 5770 1028MB (Vendor:ATI (0x1002) Device ID: 0x68b8)
  15. MSI Eclipse

    Thanks for the info AppleGuy, it somehow started posting 1333MHz I don't know what I did to get it to do that, but all is working 100% the final fix is getting my mic to work on this Audigy card, but as for everything else it's working great. edit: as much as I love my MSI Eclipse I'm thinking of sending it back for the Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 so I can setup a retail Vanilla version, and not have to deal with this Audigy card since the drivers are in beta stages I may never see mic support for it.
