    AMD Polaris IDs on Sierra / High Sierra

    There is no RX480 with 4096MiB. AMD promised to release first Polaris 10-Cards in Q2/16 and a Polaris 10 based card for less then 200$ - but the regular RX 480 8192MiB card would be too expansiv and there was no time left to ramp up RX 480 4096MiB production. So they decided to cut some 8192MiB cards simply by BIOS into 4096 cards. If you have a 4096 card of the first batch, you're able to unlock it to a regular 8192 MiB card by flashing the correct BIOS. But using the RX 480 BIOS on a RX 470 is much riskier, because the 470 isn't only cut in case of execution units/shaders but there are also different VRAM-chips used. RX 480 clocks it's VRAM with 4 GHz, while the RX 470 uses 3,5GHz. So there is a fair chance to get graphic glitches with the 480 BIOS...

    With DP2 output is working on all three DPs and the HDMI-Port, but no acceleration for 0x67DF1002. Adding DeviceID to Baffin-Family IOMatch does the trick für Fiji (aka Fury) but not for RX 480.

    Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    There are some problems with BCM94322 based half mini pcie cards, but toleda provides a fix on github Maybe using these kexts/patches will fix your problem...

    Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    You can run the combo update, but patched kexts in S/L/E maybe overwritten by newer versions of the Apple stock kext. So you will have to reinstall them. When updating from 10.10.0 to 10.10.3 (and to 10.10.4beta) via AppStore there where no kexts to reinstall or something to worry about like doing some stuff before a restart. Good luck!

    I don't think it's LittleSnitch-GUI. I'd guess there was some attempt to patch/modify use vga-out and/or hdmi audio out... You should be able to safe mode (with out graphics kext/only generic graphics) by using additional boot flag "-x", so the reinstallation of the latest kext pack will it easier than doing it via terminal. Maybe deleting kext caches and repairing permissions by running kext utility could help also.

    Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

    @downlord I remember the painful installation of Lion on the T60p - EDID hardcoding, hex editing the radeon.kext and still some glitches left... @tluck thanks for the welcome. You're wright it's possible to disable the iGPU in order to use constantly the nVidia (some guys at osxlatitude have done that with their DELL laptops). But the battery of the T420s is imho too small for this. At least MBP 15" model year 2011 (early and late) were able to switch automatically between AMD 6xxx and Intel HD3000 - imho this should also be possible with a nVidia gpu.

    Hello jengpeng, hardware revison v1 and v2 of TL-WN725N are using the RTL8188 chipset which will need a additional kext. I think the kext for mountain lion (10.8.x) will work. You can find it on the official Realtek site. But I'd recommend a internal card. A half mini pcie card that works oob will cost around 10-15 $ or € and you won't have to worry about unplugging while transporting the hackbook. But you will need a bios with removed whitelist (is linked in the guide), 5 minutes of time and a small philipps screwdriver for 3 screws (2 for the service latch and 1 for the wifi card itself). @tluck, pokenguyen and all other contributors Thanks a lot - the installation of Yosemite on my T420s worked like a charm and was completely hazzlefree done in about 30 min (including 5 min for the HD to SSD swap and switching Intel Centrino N6300 to AR9280). Last thing to fiddle out is the duels of HD3000 and NVS2000M, but that is a project for cold winter evenings ;-)
  8. 'hoi, this guide (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/264165-guide-osx-lion-on-a-p6t-deluxe-v2-usb-or-hdd/) is about installing Lion but the kexts in the linked Extra folder should also work with the snowy kitty... Good luck!

    Can't Boot USB Installer

    Did you swap the mach_kernel for a patched one? AMD cpu won't work with the stock/vanilla kernel that comes with myHack.

    Can't Boot USB Installer

    Hello and welcome! Some information about your hardware maybe helpful, especially mother board, cpu, and graphics card... Depending on your mother board I'd try to press F12 while the POST - at least on Gigabyte mobo this will give you a list of boot devices. Maybe you will have to switch from UEFI mode to legacy/mixed/BIOS mode. Depending on your hardware are also other things possible. Good luck!
  11. Hello and welcome! It would be just a workaround, but have you already played with the HDMI output of your motherboard? You will have to enable the iGPU (HD4600) with GraphicsEnabler=Yes and to prevent the deadbeef-kp with SkipAtiGfx=Yes. Assign the correct framebuffer to the HD4600 with IntelAzulFB=X (X stands for a value between 0 and 15, you will have to try them - start with 9 or 10). Afaik you can't assign a specific FB with Chameleon to AMD series 7xxx and newer. Maybe a fix analog to http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/294315-radeon-r9-270x-framebuffer-issue/ will do the trick for your triple setup... Good luck!
  12. Hello and welcome! Unless there is boot flag cpus=1 present in org.chameleon.boot.plist (just delete the flag ) I'd assume there is something wrong with the DSDT. Try to create your own, because it depends on your mobo, cpu and the bios version... Good luck!
  13. Erm, the Xeon E3-1230 V3 is a Haswell cpu (like all E3 v3 // E3 v2 was IvyBridge). Generally speaking it is a i7-4770 without the graphics part...
  14. Hello and welcome! At first: I'm no genius and it'd better if I'm noones only hope Did you connect your keyboard and mouse via the blue USB 3.0 ports? Afaik are these only working natively on Gigabyte motherboards, while mobo from all other vendors will need a driver/kext. Possible solution: plug them to the (black) USB 2.0 ports. If this won't help, try to tinker around with the bios settings for UEFI/legacy devices. (My last ASRock mobo was a 939 Dual SATA - so I'm quite outdated regarding their bioses and correct names for the switches inside them) Good luck!

    Intel HD Graphics (Haswell GT1) QE/CI

    'hoy! The graphics unit of your Pentium should have device id 0402 (vendor id is 8086 for intel as usual ). Unfortunately there is only device id 0406 (GT1 mobile) present in AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext. You could try to swap the 0406 to 0402 in the info.plist and cross your fingers the device id isn#t present in the driver itself (could also be swapped using a hex editor like 0xED) and there are no difference between the desktop and mobile version of GT1/HD4200. Keep in any case an untouched copy of AppleIntelHD500Graphics - if it doesn't work or you don't dare to modify the driver itself, you could restore the original kext and give Clover boot loader a try. Maybe it's FakeID function will do the trick. Good luck!
