Load Kexts into Bootloader?

You make a valid point! Tis a bit rude of me to ask advice and not do any of the leg work!


I've read this thread back to front: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...9818&st=120 and http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=222761


I am using the bootloader from the later thread, Boot132. However, I am only getting a black screen presumably because I am using a 5770.


The rest of my rig is

asus P6X58D-E

i7 930

everything else fairly standard and I haven't read of any issues with it.

You can try adding the relevant kexts to the ram disk image on the boot-132 CD image before burning it.


I've never had to work on a Hackintosh with ATI video card so I don't know if that will work though. But try it and see. At least your CD-RW gets put to good use.


Also you could do the opposite and add framebufferdisabler.kext, this will prevent the non-working drivers from loading (that's why you have a black screen - the card is only partially recognized) and you should be able to install and boot up in non-accelerated VESA mode. Then you can install the fixed drivers.


Well in theory at least. Do some research on framebufferdisabler.kext first - I'm not 100% sure what it does exactly, or if it will work for your purpose.
