  1. ATI HD 5770

    Hey thanks, My dsdt is someone elses, can't remember who's but it's the best I've found so far. My RAM is at the tightest timing it can go but only at 15xxmhz because of 21x191bclk. If there's more there to be found, that would be great but I am more than happy with how fast it is right now.
  2. ATi HD5000 BootLoader !

    Not a problem, happy to help a fellow LA resident. Good call, forgot to tell you to remove ATY_int as that injector is no longer needed. Also, I usually run kexthelper or the like to rebuild kext caches after just about everything I do. Doesn't hurt anything and a lot of the time makes the difference. Good luck to you, feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
  3. ATi HD5000 BootLoader !

    Hey there DR Mac, Since you have basically the same system as I do, motherboard, processor, etc. check out my extra folder and boot file from this setup. Using those you should be fine. Replace boot file in /Volumes Put the 1002_68b8.rom in /Extra/ Add UseAtiRom to your boot.plist like explained in this thread. XD3R_ver1.0_5770_64bit.zip

    Those are indeed the same Device IDs as mine. Are you trying to get full 64-bit boot or no? If you do want 64-bit boot, you should be able to follow these steps: Remove ATY_int Install latest Chameleon Bootloader from here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...l=chameleon+RC5 Replace the bootfile in your main volume with Kaybls bootfile Change your boot.plist to a 64-bit GraphicsEnabler=Yes with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. If you are fine with 32-bit: Leave ATY_int installed Use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to setup a 32-bit, graphicsenabler=no boot.plist If you have installed the correct ATI kexts, graphics update and otherwise you should be working at that point, either 32 or 64-bit. Note: None of what I said is really relevant if you don't have a properly setup computer e.g. a good dsdt.aml file for your board, all other kexts to make your system fully functional except for video under Snow Leopard 10.6.4 with graphics update 1.0. If you are still having problems with the ATI kexts, download them from this thread separate from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and install them with Kexthelper. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] did not correctly install these kexts for me.

    If you are using the ATY_int still you need to be using GraphicsEnabler=No. I'm not sure how Kabyls boot file is going to effect anything if you are still booting in 32-bit mode. For 32-bit only you can use ATY_int, GraphicsEnabler=No and the ATI kexts. Do you know what the vendor ID of your card is? Most of the 5770s I've seen working are either XFX, Sapphire or Powercolor, not the Asus version. That could be different. Also, the 5770 should use Vervet as the frame buffer, which is default for the modified ATY-int in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and in Kaybls boot. You shouldn't need it for your boot.plist with the UseAtiFB key. Basically it looks like you are confusing 2 different methods. One a 32-bit with ATY_int for graphics injection and one 64-bit with a modified boot file that utilizes GraphicsEnabler.
  6. Correct, I was just saying that using Kabyl's boot file gave me the exact same outcome as my previous setup using a ROM file. Same stability, same cinebench scores, etc.
  7. Works just like before with the UseAtiRom method. Scores the same in Cinebench. I only have 1 monitor with one connector so I'm afraid I couldn't be much help for testing past a single DVI. Thanks for all your hard work Kabyl Archive.zip
  8. ATI HD 5770

    I don't have a screen shot of it, but since posting that I have overclocked to 4.0ghz and I am now getting about 40fps and a 6.94 on the CPU portion of the test. Pretty amazing how well it scales with improvements in CPU performance. Something I'm still interested to check out, has anyone ripped a XFX 5770 ROM? I looked back a few pages but only saw Sapphire ROMs. I would like to make sure I'm getting the most out of my card.
  9. ATI HD 5770

    Just ran cinebench, seems about on point but I wonder if the ROM I used might have underclocked my card.
  10. ATI HD 5770

    Just wanted to post and say thanks to everyone in this community for making this possible. Fully functional 64-bit machine as of about 10 minutes ago. Specs: Intel i7-930 Gigabyte x58a-UD3R ver 1.0 (working LAN, Audio, Sleep, etc) 6 GB OCZ 7-7-7-20 @ 1600mhz XFX 5770 1GB Intel 80GB SDD (boot) WB Caviar Black 1TB (storage) What I did: Installed 10.6.3 using Tonymacx86 [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]-5xxx-3 boot CD Installed Combo 10.6.4 Ran [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] for Chameleon boot, UserDSDT, and Apps Restart Installed GFX update 1.0 Installed ATY_int, proper 32-bit boot.plist, ATI kexts Working 32-bit OSX 10.6.4, Geekbench score about 8700 Today, I: Downloaded Chameleon RC5 (trunk 513) and installed Replaced boot file with Mohamed's bootfile on page 34 of this thread (saved my original on desktop) Downloaded the 5770 ROM file posted in this thread and installed in EXTRA Removed ATY_int (saved copy on desktop) Modified boot.plist to look like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>DropSSDT</key> <string>yes</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> <key>UseAtiROM</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>1</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> </plist> I then ran Kext Utility and restarted. Everything in system profiler under extensions shows as 64-bit, my system seems a bit happier. Thanks again everyone! Also, any suggestions for benchmarks to run that are 64-bit? What can I run that will help anyone? Edit: Added my EXTRA folder if anyone wants to have my dsdt or otherwise. XD3R_ver1.0_5770_64bit.zip
  11. The problem wasnt support for the 5770 once I've installed, which is what you are referring to and for the most part I think thats been figured out. My problem was a total kernel panic once the bootloader started trying to install SL. That was fixed with the newest [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] with 5xxx series support, which also has the kexts and the ATY_int in [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url].
  12. Figured out my problem. The video card. I had to use the newest [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] ATI 5xxx.2 boot disk. Now I'm just working out problems with the kexts in OSX. It's still progress. Thanks!
  13. Well, the 10.6.3 version I have imaged on to the USB stick is just a retail DVD rip, it's not any specific version. Kakewalk I assume is just installing some .kexts and what not to support my motherboard, not modifying the kernel. I just tried booting with the options -x -v -f cpus=1 busratio=21. I watched it load all of the extensions and what not, then gets to the same point, I'm assuming when the screen should go grey and the installer should start and it does the same old dance. Full speed video card fan, black screen. I'm downloading iAtkos s3 right now because I read on the Kakewalk forums that someone used that instead with success. It's also 10.6.3 version.
  14. I have, but my board is a version 1.0, not the 2.0 that post references. I went through the first few pages to see if anyone with that board had the same problem, as well as searching the forum but I can't seem to peg down any search terms that find anything relevant. I might be a noob but posting was my last resort. I have searched/changed hardware/troubleshot for hours and hours now.
  15. A little embarrassed to be making this post, but I'm at wits end. I know my inexperience with OSX and my hardware are making the problem, but I'm hoping someone knows the answer. Here's my hardware: i7-930 Gigabyte x58a-UD3R 4 GB of PC12800 RAM during install ATI 5770 1GB in PCI-E 16x slot 1 Asus SATA DVD-RW in white SATA_1 80 GB HFS+J Formatted SATA drive in white SATA_0 USB Keyboard and Mouse during install ACHI Modes set, 64-bit HPET, etc in BIOS Using Kakewalk 2.2 on CD to boot to an imaged 10.6.3 USB stick. I can't seem to get Kakewalk USB to boot, so this method is the closest I've been to actually starting the install. The issue I'm running into: no matter what I do is once I get to the Kakewalk screen (Chameleon boot selection screen), choose my OSX USB stick in verbose, it starts working, then gets to a point I can't catch because it scrolls too fast, then my video card fan goes to 100%, the screen blacks out and it doesn't do anything more. I've never gotten past this point. The reason I'm using Kakewalk is because it has support for my motherboard, but I've also looked into [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] + [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and I've run into the same problem. Should I try a different installer? I know my video card isn't really ideal for a hackintosh but has support now since the newest iMacs use a 5700 series card. Is there something I can do to get the install to start with it or should I buy a cheap NVidia PCI-E card for the install then swap once everything is working? I'm hoping I'm just missing something stupid, but if my hardware is really the issue I'll head to the Best Buy and get something to get the install going. Thanks so much! Ok, I'm pretty sure what I'm missing is some terminal commands at the beginning of my install, at the Kakewalk window. I'm going to give -v -x cpus=1 busratio=21 a try and see what happens.
