  1. [Fixed] Ghost display on MSI R5770 Hawk in Lion

    Glad it worked. The alot is better than you at everything

    Typing GraphicsEnabler=No at the Chameleon boot prompt will override whatever is in boot.plist. You shouldn't need to boot from the install disk.

    I'm not sure if the kext we've got here will fix it , but it's worth a try. If it doesn't work and you don't get any display output, reboot with GraphicsEnabler=no at the boot prompt and revert to the old kext once Mac OS has booted.

    Sorry I've been absent. I've modified my DSDT so I no longer need graphicsenabler and this fix, but I've made the modifications to the kext and attached it. This is untested, so tell me if it works. I believe it should be modified to allow HDMI audio as well. Good luck. (axm, you couldn't handle following my instructions? And 'common'? Come on... ) ATI5000Controller.kext.zip

    Can you post the output from System Information under Graphics/Displays? You need to figure out what connector needs to be deleted from the profile.
  6. [Fixed] Ghost display on MSI R5770 Hawk in Lion

    You can try it. I'm just not sure it'll work for your card. It depends on how similar the ports are and how they're configured on the card. Make sure to backup your previous kext and either have a way to restore the original if things go wrong (e.g. a bootable installer disk or other installation entirely) or have another profile that you know works (e.g. Eulemer) that you can switch to at the Chameleon boot prompt with AtiConfig=. EDIT: If things go wrong, I guess you could just use GraphicsEnabler=No to get back to the OS to fix things.

    So I'll just post the link to that guide. Am I correct in concluding that, if you're using GraphicsEnabler=Yes, then Part 3 of the guide simplifies to changing the 01 to 05 for the R5770 Hawk?

    Sorry I've been absent for so long, guys (and gals?). Narayana, Glad to hear you got HDMI audio working. I'll edit my previous post to give some details. Am I right in my understanding that all you need is the AppleHDA kext and to change the trailing 01 to a 05? nesnfsn, I never actually used the files outputted when ati-personality.pl is run. Instead, I looked at the output on the command line. You can try all the profiles listed in the output of ati-personality.pl under "Kext ATI6000Controller" one by one by specifying AtiConfig=... at the Chameleon boot prompt (don't do it in boot.plist as this could make your system unbootable until you edit the file from some other installation, like the bootable installer). Maybe one of the other profiles will fix your problem. Most of them probably won't work at all. If you can't find a better default profile, you will need to edit one that works to better suit your needs. I would recommend that you carefully read through Editing custom personalities for ATI Radeon HD[45]xxx, Build your own ATI personality for better ATI Radeon HD[45]xxx support and my posts above. They outline how you can make changes to the kext for the 4/5000 series cards and I assume it's similar for the 6000 series. You will want to figure out what kind the 'ghost' display is in System Information and edit one of the profiles that let's your system boot (probably the one your system uses by default, without AtiConfig=) to remve that connector. Do you know what profile your card is using by default? I forget how you can determine this yourself. The more universal method would be listed here. It's what my method is based on, as I stated in my post. I'm not sure if your card is using the Vervet profile by default, like mine is. Can you boot with AtiConfig=Vervet at the Chameleon boot prompt?
  9. [Fixed] Ghost display on MSI R5770 Hawk in Lion

    I can't help you there. I use DVI to HDMI for my video output and a USB DAC for audio. I don't see HDMI as an option for audio output in System Preferences, but maybe it requires being connected to an audio capable device.

    The modified 10.7.2 kext is attached. ATI5000Controller.kext.zip
  11. [Fixed] Ghost display on MSI R5770 Hawk in Lion

    Yes. I can upload it later today or you can follow the instructions above to make your own. It seems to be working just fine.
  12. Yes? (If I understand what you're asking) This Chameleon supports GraphicsEnabler=Yes, which should get your card working. It also supports specifying the 'personality' of your card with AtiConfig=..., which can help if one or more of your connections does not work. You can read more here and here.

    Sorry. I think I uploaded the wrong kext (I think mine was the original). I've attached my modified kext again. ATI5000Controller.kext.zip
  14. Well, that was short lived. I'm trying to use the same instructions to install the retail Lion. I had trouble with Chameleon not finding mach_kernel. I resolved this at the boot prompt by typing /Extra/mach_kernel. Once the installer drive booted it said something about this version of OS X Lion cannot be installed on this computer. My only options were to restore from a Time machine backup or reboot.
  15. Lion @ AppStore

    Downloaded it. The App Store replaced my GM installer with the new one. I've tried restoring 'Mac OS Base System' to my USB drive, but there doesn't seem to be any mach_kernel included. EDIT: I think I just missed a step in the setup. I'm trying again from scratch.
