I need a help with my Hackintosh

I finally successfully installed OS X Leopard using iAtkos 7. I just follow the instructions and I have OS working.

However, the graphic mode is very low (my graphics card was not recognized) and it is not stable installation (each time I change something, make an update, run ######, I can not boot back into the system).

Some functions (surprisingly) work, such as Ethernet and USB.

Can somebody help me with setting drivers for my system? Where to get them and how to install them?

All components of my computer should be Vanilla friendly (I have a CustoMac recommended build).


Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H67MA-UD2H-B3

CPU: Intel Core i5-2400

Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 5770, 1GB


Also, I researched my Graphics card and found following information:


Device ID-0x68B8 OSX 10.6.7

###### 3.2 [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 2.7/ ATI drivers from 3.4 using Notshy's method

FrameBuffer=Vervet / ATI Experimental

Chameleon Boot - ###### 3.3.0 - GraphicsEnabler=Yes - 64 bit=YES!!


So can somebody help me to fix drivers and make my Hackintosh fully potential? What exactly steps I need to do?

Thank you in advance.

To clear the EBIOS read error, turn your PSU off, hold the power button in for 5 seconds then turn the PSU on and try to boot. (I had this issue today strangely).


As for Leopard, it is old and unsupported, your hardware is perfectly capable of running lion. Use your Leopard installation to create the Lion boot media and try to install Lion to another partition.


You will be able to use the vanilla kernel in Lion (sandy-bridge support) and will therefore have an install much closer to a real mac which will be much easier to update etc.
