Hi everyone! This isn't my first rodeo, but I'm shooting in the dark here and I really need to be pointed in the right direction. Been using this site with my hackintosh projects for years and years. Please take a look!
I have two different ATi HD5670 cards on two systems (using DSDTs) running Mountian Lion (10.8 GM)
The first is a Gainward 5670 1GB DDR3 which worked with only GraphicsEnabler=Yes and seems to work perfectly with AtiConfig values of Baboon and Vervet. Baboon recognizes the card as 5670 and Vervet reports the card as "5000 series" but they both function perfectly.
The second, a newer Powercolor HD 5670 1GB DDR3 was never recognized (system reported "Display 3MB") with any of the following:
* GraphicsEnabler= yes/no, aticonfig= vervet/baboon/uakari
* Used every bootloader that supports 10.8
* Replaced "Ati5000Controller, ATIsupport, ATIFramebuffer" Kexts from SL (10.6.7) and Lion
* With and without ATI5000injector kext
Using the older ATI files from 10.6 and 10.7 gives me resolution options and system detects "5000 Series" but the graphics performance is awful, bad artifacts, 30 seconds to load the app launcher, etc.
Using common sense, since my Gainward 5670 works OOB with GraphicsEnabler, I shouldn't need to replace the 3 ATI kexts. The problem is probly GraphicEnabler not correctly detecting the Powercolor 5670. What should I do?
Try using UseAtiRom? (I read this won't make a difference anymore)
Edit the 10.8 Ati5000Controller? (How exactly? Have a link?)
Could it be a different Framebuffer?
Thanks for reading and I hope someone can point me in the right direction!
