Ok, so last time i got back to the desktop in netkas mode and then followed the steps in the post: removed ATY_init, kext caches, installed Asere modified, and then removed the display configuration.

 

Booted up again in arch=x86_64 GraphicsEnabler=Yes and it KPed again

 

Try to add PCIRootUID=1

 

Can you post your com.apple.Boot.plist? What is your mother board and are you using DSDT.aml? Please list the name of kext in /Extra/Extensions.

Trying again, but this time i got a KP when i installed the kexts using the "kext helper b7"

 

Motherboard is an EP35-DS3P, installed using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Supported from tonymacx86, and then hardened with the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. No custom DSDT.aml. Will post the boot.plist when i next get into a GUI on the machine.

 

EDIT: WOOHOOOO, thanks tmongkol. Using PCIRootUID=1 made it work.

 

EDIT2: For reference my Boot.plist is:

<?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">

Edit3: Just plugged in my secondary monitor and it works fine too:

Edit4: Triple monitors is out. The third knocks out the first when i plug it into the DisplayPort and doesnt work at all when plugged into HDMI (as it shouldnt, the card doesnt support 2 DVI and HDMI at the same time)

You may use

 

<key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string></string>

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>

<string>Yes</string>

 

in your com.apple.Boot.plist.

 

Since you are using LegacyAppleRTC.kext instead of DSDT.aml and using AsereBLN's boot, you need to add PCIRootUID=1. It might be different from previous Chameleon boot loader. You can learn more about AsereBLN's boot.

 

 

 

i dont think really needed switchresx i had it before when i tried to get my lcd TV to work and overscan correctly..but with the 5770 card it overscans like its suppose to..:) and its an LCD tv and i have it hooked hop with an hdmi to dvi adapter..

 

Thanks I got it.

 

I also connected LCD TV (HD) by using DVI-HDMI adaptor. I got as the following picture. You may try to reduce the size. This's the first time I saw. Previously I saw Overscan check box for my HD4870. I will try install new driver for HD4870 and see what will be changed.

 

using HD5770 to LCD TV

Yepp. Used drivers from netkas und changed in my ATY_init all Uakira to Vervet ... so file will be exactly the same. Do u have 2 dvi ports and only one which is pluged in? or do u use a adaptor or another cable?

im only using one cable with Vervet, working like a charm, i have used dvi to vga, just plain dvi and dvi to hdmi, and had my lcd tv hooked up at the same time as well and it even worked like a charm..im gonna try 2 of my 5770 cards now to see what it does then...

You all seem like pros >.<

But I am a noob soo...

can someone list me the files that would get my Sapphire 5770 that has 1 vga port and 512mb gddr5 to work (btw Netkas told me that the kexts i use would be the same as the 1gb 5770s)

thanks =)

everyone having trouble should boot using -s mode.

mount your drive, delete ATIRadeonX3000.kext and ATISupport.kext so you can then boot to desktop again.

Delete ATY_Init

exit

run kext utility which will repair S/L/E and clear caches

Install tmongkols edited version of Asere Bootloader, install the 7 ATI kexts without ATY_Init

Edit your boot plist to containt GraphicsEnabler=Yes and also remove all boot flags so it boots to 64bit by default.

 

Then everything should work fine.

 

2x DVI tested - works

 

HDMI - works perfect and also as a extended desktop.

You should provide more detail about your Hardware in Signature. What are kexts in /Extra/Extensions? What are in com.apple.Boot.plist?

Also try swapping your DVI ports if one gives black screen, not sure how your fan would hit full speed.

i'll post kexts in /Extra/Extensions is and my com.apple.Boot.plist after i get home.

 

Hardware in Signature now

 

 

this is a very long issue for me

first ,when i try to install SL (10.6.0 disc, should i get a 10.6.3 for test?), i use [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]-support from tonymac ,after hit install dvd's icon, I'll only get a black screen + full-speed GPU Fan Noise. swiped 2dvi port ,sitll black.

so i had to found a nvidia 7300le to instal SL first.

after install (10.6.0 or update to 10.6.3 10.6.4 will same), (GraphicsEnabler=y) in boot plist by default , i replace 7300le with my 5750 and get black + fan noise again.

i had to change GraphicsEnabler=n ,then i can get into gui with 1024*768.

 

when GraphicsEnabler=y ,i can't do anything at all.

 

PS: i try to remove DSDT or kexts in extra also, no help, black + fan noise alway follow me :censored2:

 

anyway, i finaly get it work by using ATY_Init.kext (modified Vervet as framebuffer)

 

so GraphicsEnabler=y or n isn't bother me anymore .

 

but i can't use [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]-support to boot into the SL install dvd is a BIG issue for me ,i can't use it to backup my system by make .dmg images ,could some other Boot disc may i Try ? or any other backup tools support HFS+ ?

I just want to put my two cents in.

 

I've got an XFX HD5770 1GB card and it's running with full everything in 64 bit mode.

 

I followed these steps.

 

- I have a EP45-UD3P v1.6 and I installed 10.6 with stellas v3 installer.

- Then updated to 10.6.4

- Before rebooting I Install tmongkols edited version of Asere Bootloader, and installed the 7 ATI kexts

- Then edited my boot plist to contain GraphicsEnabler=Yes and also removed all boot flags so it boots to 64bit by default.

 

Plain and simple it just worked after that and I don't have to have more than one DVI plugged in or have it plugged in any specific port.

What is the hardware ID of your 5750? I didnt think the 5750 was in the supported list for the Kext.

 

0x68B81002

i know it's strange ,it's 5770's dev-id

 

for my own test on this card.

GraphicsEnabler=Yes will course black screen+full-speed GPU Fan Noise (anyone same as me?)

what ever eles things (bootloader, kexts, DSDT, Bios Settings, etc.) be

 

i'm so confused ,why other people fine with GraphicsEnabler=Yes

 

clearly, tmongkols edited version of Asere Bootloader + GraphicsEnabler=Yes is better ,because it's 64bit

but for now, i can only use ATY_Init.kext (modified Vervet as framebuffer) + GraphicsEnabler=No , to get it work in 32bit.

Get LSPCI tool and install it.

 

Open Terminal

Type lspci -nn and press Enter, it should give you your device id and info.

If not working, you may need to restart.
