  1. Atheros 5005G/AR2413 in ML

    Hello! I have a Belkin F5D7000 v.5100 wireless G PCI card. The device/vendor ID is 168c,1a. I've added my device ID in IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AtherosAirPort40.kext/Content/Info.plist and tried various other kexts around the Internet but nothing will allow Mountain Lion to detect the card. I have an Asus P8Z77-V LK mobo and did a DSDT-less installation. What else can I try to get this card detected? Edit: I installed the AtherosFix.kext that's floating around, I've now got the wifi icon in the top right, but it says "Wifi: no hardware detected" and wifi does not show up in System Preferences -> Network.
  2. Need help with HD4550 support

    Hello I've been trying various things to get QE/CI support for my Saphire Radeon HD4550. It looks to be possible, but I haven't actually found a tutorial. My system specs; ASUS M4A78T-E AMD Phenom II X3 720 @ 2.81GHz (default clock) 6GB 1600 RAM Saphire Radeon HD 4550 512MB Drives in AHCI (only way to get boot device) So far I have tried SnowLeo 10.6.0 with PC EFI 10.5 and 10.6 with Evo Enabler and ATY_Init with no luck. I get a garbled screen after booting in normal mode, if I boot into safe mode it works but the card will not be properly detected ie it appears as "GPU" in System Profiler. I've tried using each VGA, DVI, and HDMI port, and even combinations of each with no luck. Display: Type: GPU Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x8 VRAM (Total): 256 MB Vendor: ATI (0x1002) Device ID: 0x954f Revision ID: 0x0000 Kernel Extension Info: No Kext Loaded Displays: Display: Resolution: 1024 x 768 Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Recently I have installed iATKos S3 V2 (OS X 10.6.3) with much success using PC EFI 10.6 (with GraphicsEnabler) and EvoEnabler but still get no GPU support. Garbled screen after boot, no native resolution in safe mode, or any QE/CI support. Though this time my card appears as an "HD4300 Series" but has the same vendor ID 0x1002 (obviously) and device ID 0x954f. In Windows it also appears as "HD4300/4500 Series". I tried adding an EFI string to com.apple.boot.plist via ioreg, gfxutils, and EFI Studio. That gives me a black screen on boot. I've also tried patching EvoEnabler via this post, it doesn't seem to help any. So now I'm wondering what else I should do? Currently I'm trying to update to 10.6.4 and apply the graphics patch to use this beta bootloader. Any help is greatly appreciated! EDIT: Wanted to update that with the kexts from here I can boot in normal mode (64bit, no flags) and the card appears as a 4890 in System Profiler, with the correct device ID: 0x954f. Regards, Das
