  1. ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x & 10.6

    Great Stuff, this is should draw a lot of attention soon. I am not interested in the ever increasing expensive synthetic hardware unless there is totally no hope. I thank you for your attempts to let everyone know thanks again. I will be trying this soon.
  2. [Working] ATi Radeon 5670

    Thank you JinJi and congratulations. Information like this is getting to everyone hope and time to troubleshooting other issues.. Does this video card has any display port and the part number on the box? And which reivision of the mother board do you have or bios ? Which brand and model of the monitor? Thanks great job.

    +1 to Netkas as well. I have been reading a lot. All I could see so far everyone asking 5670 or 5570 etc. to the tone equal to begging. I know I have posted just a couple of clarifications in a gentle manner. So far, HD 5xxx, I am repeating again, is 'meaningless', because HD 5670 is equivalent to our daily questions - Is it hot out there today? - what temperature -humidity etc make the 'hot' a general understanding 'hot' but how hot or etc in not there. These HD 5xxx or what not does not help. And a lot of the successful poster 'happened' to forget to let us in on it. Please quote: Brand or manufacturer: Chipset and VRAM type and size and speed: Part Number: Revison Number (if any): Bus Type:(optional) Link or URL:(Optional): But at least the first three, so that no one will be on a wild hunt for moon dust, but try to come understanding and may be leading a solution. I can give the example of Sapphire 5670 has serveral part numbers - and they could mean the same thing or with slightly different physical and electronical differences and they do make a difference. And the provider of information and asking for a solution can visualize - where DSDT comes from why a ROM dump is necessary. And why would an item work after the device ID is included in the boot plist? I am so mistyfied by the unwillingless by majority of the 'successful installs' after they have gotten help from someone else other than themselver and neglected to mention the most important information when help is being asked and help is being provided. Like so: But if IRC: since July 20th, someone asl the above mentioned successful installer at no time even being asked in the other thread has yet to reveal the exact video card. I have looked all over and wasted a lot of time, not just here in these threads but elsewhere. And so as another thread with the HD xxxx totally missing in another thread over at Netkas. And then another in discussing right here regarding a 5570 card. In engineering, motherboard BIOS, video firmware, lan card firmware and drivers etc., in these forums and threads, the BIOSes, Firmwares etc. should be a big hint: why are they there, of course, the real electronics components dictate that; for the asking and the helping. Otherwise, it is just burning keycaps and bandwidth. I am sorry. I have been observing from a different perspective. Just so, as a clearer indication to our predicaments, why are there more than one Q8300 CPU, one has the VT-x and the others does not http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?spec=SLB5W There, if ther is someone say I 'got the Q8300 into the VT-x', but no one mention to a poor soul that the SPEC code is important to get into the VT-x mode, then everyone else will search until the next-next-generation of 2560 pin-grid new live CPU comes around and shipped in RUBIC's cube format with pin 1 on one round corner. Why are there Gigabyte motherboards GA-MA785-US2H rev, 1.0, 1.1, 1.3 and then 3.3 within 9 months' or less time? And there are different revisions of BIOSes and even drivers as well. And the best is the G41 ES2L big jackpot - Rev.1 and 2 use different LAN chips etc. Well, I could have told you here but, please go find out. At the least, I am here to say to find out with all the revision numbers given out here. If you didn't go check, then, the USB charging capabilities for Ipods or devices are not included in some of the revisions. I hope with these examples, let us help each others out by quoting all the most important information and ultimately letting the manufacturers know we know the differences. Please everyone should be able to give the most pertinent information right. Such as who manufactured the HD5670 that was successful on July 20th to start, i have thanked _MAC_BABY_ already by quoting the HIS 5670 version, but I don't know the memory size (I missed it he did have 1GB) or what ports are on it - VGA, DVI, HDMI or display port, -- remember the newer mac use display ports. And if not remember everyone was swapping the monitor or need to hook up the dvi-vga or vga-dvi or etc tor to get the monitors up and running. I hope what I propose here can reduce a lot of headaches, time, resources both financially and mentally for everyone. Thanks for your reading and understanding. If these does not make sense to you, please accept my apology.

    Thank you _MAC_BABY_ for sharing this hot information. Finally and especially, in your signature there is the magic video card - brand and name - there may be many others good cards or bad cards out there, at the least, we know there is this card out there truly will give us a direction. I have no idea why so many success stories yield only a couple of 'named' cards. It feels like some one 'will'; after seeing the successful 'card' installs will go out and buy all of them and then try to sell all those with astronomical premiums to make a fortune by keeping it an elusive secret. All the quoted 'HD 5xxx' is meaningless when seeking or providing help, so: Brand or manufacturer: Chipset and VRAM type and size and speed: Part Number: Revison Number (if any): Bus Type:(optional) Link or URL:(Optional): But at least the first three, so that no one will be on a wild hunt for moon dust, but try to come understanding and may be leading a solution.

    I have posted the same in another thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1528782 Please accept my congrats to all those who have joyfully cheered their success. Especially to Netkas and lastExile and all others have helped in the community. Can you please let us know what manufacturer, model, chipset, especially 'part numbers, revision of the video card', and even the color of the packaging of your successful adapters? I know there are permutations to the motherboards, rams, bios etc. But for starter, the crucial piece in this endeavor -- video card. Thanks in advance. PS: Please 'DON'T' keep us in suspense anymore.
