      Forum Rules   04/13/2018

      Hello folks! As some things are being fixed, we'll keep you updated. Per hour the Forum Rules don't have a dedicated "Tab", so here is the place that we have our Rules back. New Users Lounge > [READ] - InsanelyMac Forum Rules - The InsanelyMac Staff Team. 

6570m (Lenovo y560p) Lion

So after days and days of hunting around and trying at least 15 or 20 solutions and breaking one installation forcing me to start from scratch I am at my wits end. I can not get my 6570m working. I've tried ATY_Init.kext, I've updated chameleon to 2.1 SVN 1902, I've tried GraphicEnabler, AtiConfig=Hoolock, I even have a custom DSDT. So I've decided to try this, a bounty. To whoever can help me get my 6570m fully working with acceleration/etc. No situations where I can only use an external monitor or anything else. Also Chimera won't work for me, it throws a lot of errors and won't boot. This is both upgrading to it after a successful install with chameleon and when starting with it from scratch.


I can not dump my rom, it is a shared BIOS with the main system BIOS (I've tried).


My specs:

Lenovo y560p

http://www.lenovo.co..._tech_specs.pdf (2.0Ghz i7 variant)

iAtkos L2 install

Chameleon 2.1 SVN 1902

Lion 10.7.4


Attached is my DSDT, smbios.plist, and org.chameleon.Boot.plist.




Oh to complicate things, I can't be online in the MacOS install yet (hence my other problem) so all solutions have to rely on a windows internet connection. (e.g. I cant recompile Chameleon on the fly from a fresh SVN pull)

Look, I won't start a discussion about the rules.They were there much before I became an administrator.

Rules have been created after much discussion among all members of staff.
