Recommended Posts

got a noob question... what does works without injector mean ?

 

no kext ? dsdt or etc ? just plain nvenable or graphics enabler ?

 

planning to buy a 5670 or 5770... hope it boots when i put on

 

Thx

As far as I have delt with out of the box is you just install your OS and it will work...SL I had to use kexts but when I did Lion I didnt need anything....it was pretty nice

With Chameleon RC5 r1003, Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5450 1GB works literally out of the box with Graphics Enabler. QE/CI is perfect, display sleeps properly. Needed a reasonably priced low profile card and this fits the bill.

 

Not tested VGA or HDMI output, but DVI is fine. Not played with getting the onboard audio working for HDMI yet.

UPDATE: Doesn't even need Graphics Enabler. :)

UPDATE 2: Both with and without Graphics Enabler, DVD Player and Geekbench crash at launch. Otherwise perfect.

UPDATE 3: It's this exact card: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0036DD4CO

UPDATE 4: Fully Working! See this post for the fix. :)

Could you try and see if DVD Player and Geekebench open?

Add the DevID to NV100HAL.. kext and you'll get QE/CI and full res. :)

 

Would you mind giving a general how to for getting the 560 Ti fully working? I'd be very grateful.

 

Thanks

GOOD = recognized by Lion USB Boot and default Lion install

BAD = neither GraphicsEnabler=yes or no worked

 

  • GOOD - Sapphire HD5570 - DVI recognized with GraphicsEnabler=yes, didn't test DVD Player
  • BAD - XFX HD5770 (Double slot not single slot) - Could boot and install with -x only. Had to replace Lion graphics with 10.6.8 patched ones. OS was slow in places (Launchpad was glacial - videos stuttered with lots of CPU - like QE/CI wasn't enabled)
  • GOOD - Gigabyte HD5770 Batmobile - DVI recognized with GraphicsEnabler=yes, DVD Player doesn't work
  • GOOD - Sapphire HD6850 (100315L) - DVI recognized with GraphicsEnabler=yes, DVD Player works - HDMI didn't work (Framebuffer is Duckweed)

I don't have Display Port connectors on my monitor and don't have a Display Port > DVI dongle so I couldn't test the Display Port on the HD5770's or the HD6850.

 

I'm ticked off about the XFX HD5770 because I got it about 1.5 months ago for this hackintosh and had to end up getting an HD6850 to get Lion installed. I didn't want to risk getting another 5xxx series when the 68xx series was looking to be very compatible - it ends up the only bad apple is the XFX HD5770

I can't get my XFX 5770 to work in SL 10.6.8 either (artifacts and such). When I swapped the 10.6.8 ATI kexts with the 10.6.7 kexts and I got a kernel panic.

For those that have 9800 GT working:

Are you using the Nvidia driver that comes with 10.7 or are you using NVIDIA Retail Mac Driver 256.01.00f03.mpkg?

Gigabyte GTX460 worked. Using tseug's easy method and with patched DSDT (not sure if DSDT is crucial or not.)

Have full QE/QI even in the install welcome screen.

No other drivers were used additionally.

GT240M works fully (even brightness works without any extra kext) with those efi strings, you may have to customize device-path for your system.

Could you try and see if DVD Player and Geekebench open?

Nuts. I was happy until I tried those two! Turns out the HD5450 isn't entirely happy out-of-the-box.

 

Everything appears to be fine, but DVD Player and Geekbench both exit with a 'EXC_BREAKPOINT (SIGTRAP)' error in the report.

 

So... does anyone know how to fix this? :)

 

ATI Radeon HD 5450 1GB works 100% with ATIinjector.kext in /Extra

Could you post your kext, as I'm having some troubles with mine!

 

UPDATE: Fixed! See this post for the fix. :)

Sapphire HD5850 Xtreme 1Go - 1xDVI 1xHDMI 1xDP

 

GOOD : Working smoothly OOB

 

BAD : recognized only as Radeon 5000 Series and DVD Player, Geekbench etc. crash.

With Graphics Enabler = Yes, DVI works, but HDMI Display is wrong (model not longer detected, wrong resolution, wrong colors).

 

As ^Andy^ suggested, i'll try with different framebuffers (already tried some, but it didn't solve the problem).

I've XFX5770, it works great on both SL 10.6.8 and now on Lion GM. Can't test dvd player since I don't have any dvd drive, but geekbench 32bit works as expected. Nothing much I did to get it to work, was using Andy guide to install Lion GM and [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] afterward.

Specifically which model XFX 5770? Single slot or dual slot?

Palit GTX570 works perfectly with Full QE/QI.

 

Just added vendor id to preinstalled 10.7 GM NVDAGF100Hal.kext/Contents/Info.Plist

 

I'm getting really confused in this forum, some people say some graphic cards work and then some say they don't.

Is this list really updated with Lion? If Lion GM is basicaly the same that will be on the shelves tomorrow (so I hope), why don't we know yet all the graphic card that are really supported from the installation? Like just install hackintosh and get everything working out of the box? Can't we find that out and have that list? I think that would REALLY help people that are trying to build a nice system with the lastest supported graphic cards but are noobies.

GTX570 has everything working and GTX 560 Ti doesn't? Is that correct?

Thanks guys.

Good to know...

 

OK so you have a

XFX ATI Radeon HD 5770 HD577X-ZNFC

 

The one I have which doesn't work is a

XFX ATI Radeon HD 5770 HD577A-ZNFC

 

I think it's the 577A and not the 577X that has issues for some reason.
