I'm trying to install SL in my computer. My Leopard installation works fine, but i can't boot Snow and i think it's is for my graphic card, someone who had success with HD3650?

What symptoms you have? Did you try with EVOenabler.kext? See if this thread will help you. This is for HD4850 but not sure if it will also work for your card.

I've got the same card and am in the same boat! Works perfect in Leopard, but SL install just boots to grey screen. I deleted the ATI4xxx kexts and controller kext, as it said on Netkas about some other ATI cards. It let me past the grey screen but resolution was really poor and then I got a kernel panic very shortly after. Decided to leave SL until a proper video solution is available.

 

Big thanks to everyone on the scene for all their hard work.

Hi... i'm from Thailand.

My english so little bad, But i already Success with HD3650+Snow Leopard in da 2 week ago.

 

in da first time(with many round installation) can't boot after install.

But after try to do again and again. >>>> i can do!!!!

 

I know ... it's look like so "stupid figure" from me!!

But it's real for HD3650 in da first time.

 

My system

AMD Athlon 64X2 5000+

ECS A780GM-A on SB700 (HD3200 can't work)

ATI HD3650 PCi-EX

DDR2 800 MHz 4 GB

4.Reboot your system and type -x in da boot menu again

 

5.Set your Display Properties (i use 1600x900)

and Remove many shortcut in dock.

And change wallpaper.

(i Just have Finder / Safari / Trash / Download / System Preference in my Dock)

(Do not worry you can add it again later)

 

6.Set your time Zone / Language / and fix date and time to show date+time+second too.

 

7.Use OSx86Tools for change your ram and cpu info.

8.Now you will reboot your Snow Leopard again, And now you can boot Snow Leopard in normal mode.

 

After i do like these figure i can use everything that i hope

But i still can not use QE/CI.

 

in da first time after install ... i try so many times reboot without take figuar>>5 + 6 + 7, and i will can't boot in normal mode.

I know ... it's look like so "stupid figure" from me!!

But it's real for HD3650 in da first time.

 

Good Luck.

 

PS. If who can use QE/CI Pls told me too.

Thanks

 

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Oh ... after da figure 3 i use kext helper install SB700 Kext after reboot again

(For chipset SB700 only)

Download here >>

really it sounds strange and it's difficult to beleave (i know, you know :()

anyway i tried to reboot at least 10 or 15 times, and nothing happened. If you haven't QE and CI it is probabbly you can't repeat this magic. Anyway, congratulation, you can fell lucky today hehe

 

I want to think that someone is working now in a specific kext, who knows? :)

 

I saw OVEnabler before and i thought "it is not for me 48xx it isnt too similar to my 3650", anyway i'm going to try next week, thank you!

How is that a success if you don't have QE/CI?

I also tried to use drivers from Leo but the gave me compatibility errors with the new OpenGL framework. So no QE/CI for me too, only resolution change :(

Grim Reaper Thanks for the driver, but it doesn't work. The closest it gets is a password prompt, which won't allow entrance.

It's for Leopard and I've been using it for 6 months with 10.5.8 with iMovie 09.

 

The download I provided a link to in a previous post works and the zip file doesn't need a password to decompress.

 

 

 

Is it for SL? if it is, does it work with QE/CL?

I can get mine to boot into Snow Leopard with a HD3650. The screen resolution is locked at 1400x1050 (I need 1680x1050), and there's no hardware acceleration (it does not detect the card properly, although it sees it as a HD3650, but only with 256mb ram etc.). I just deleted all the ati/nvidia kexts in the system/library/extentions folder. That seemed to do the trick.

 

If anyone have any ideas on how to move on from here... fire away!! ;)
