  1. Clover General discussion

    Thanks for your efforts, it did not work. I did try a different config.plist too. I'm going to keep trying tomorrow, so messed up though.

  5. Clover General discussion

    I can't boot with 4268 or 4259. I am able to boot with 4243 and before. In verbose boot with 4259 and 4268 it freezes right away and I'm not sure how to troubleshoot. I appreciate clover and any help you can give. Thanks johnm Attached photos of verbose freezing 4268, and the customize choices I made when installing clover upgrade only, thanks
  6. WhatEverGreen Support Topic

    My realtek audio got knocked out with the latest whatevergreen.kext 1.1.0 _ lilu 1.2.0. I have limited ability to self diagnose and usually have to ask for help. If anyone can advise me on what info I can gather to see if it's a simple config.plist addition or subtraction I'd appreciate it. I went back to lilu 1.1.7 and whatevergreen 1.0.4. The previous kexts are great, just wanted to report in case there is something that others might benefit from. Thanks for the info, johnm
  7. Do you have any go to pages that give good info and/or instructions about using ESXi and GPU passthrough and also digital audio? I"ve wanted to try using your methods to have osx virtualization from the windows os that has video acceleration and qe/cl. Are you able to have accelerated video with passthrough? Thanks
  8. I 'll do this this weekend. Thank you for the info
  9. yeah, I've never gotten my x99 and rx480 to work even with the helper cards. I spent months trying and asking questions. It seems impossible to get an answer why clover cannot bypass efi graphics initialization and let osx do it. I saw mork was on it on the clover test page, but it got forgotten. It seems the only easy way to get rx480 working is with a downgrade to a board with igpu.
  10. AMD Polaris IDs on Sierra / High Sierra

    Thank you. I'm willing to try flashing a new .rom on my card. Can you point me to the rom and flashing app? Also, can I dual boot to windows? Why wouldn't you be able to use your 1st pcie slot? Thanks for the info

    Thanks, I don't have an igpu. I use an asusx99 board no onboard gfx,but thank you RX480 will work in x8 and x4, that's not the issue. It supposedly clover, but back burner for them. I'm just exploiting the topic keeping it alive,
  12. AMD Polaris IDs on Sierra / High Sierra

    I've done everything just like you said over and over, in every conceivable way, like I said, for three months. Nothing about what you have said is any different from what I've said I've done. My questions is why do these few latest radeon cards need a helper card? I thought I had broken it down, clearly, what I've done, but you are saying the same things I already know and have tried. I appreciate your time and effort though.
  13. AMD Polaris IDs on Sierra / High Sierra

    O.K. I have been trying for 3 months unsuccessfully to get Sierra working with my RX480. I never got a clear idea why a helper card was needed to get acceleration. I've seen a few heavy hitters here and elsewhere allude to trying to figure out why a helper card is needed, but no clear info yet. I've used a hd5750 and a hd4650 as helper cards that both have QE/CL. When I try to add my rx480 I get black screen, or reboot or freeze black screen in the middle of the boot. I've used all different combos of hdmi dvi and dp, CSM on and off, cables plugged in and not plugged in at clover boot, etc.etc.ect. My Asus board does not allow me to switch cards around and boot from say slot #3, so my helper is always slot#1 and rx480 I've tried in slot3and4. I have hackintoshed 5 different pc's since snow leopard, so it's not like I don't have a clue, but I don't have a clue. Any info would be appreciated,Thank you johnm

    yes, thanks I understood that, I was hoping @slice or someone on clover dev or one of the final cut enthusiasts would solve the helper card/internal graphics preboot necessity part
