Various strange problems with graphics and storage.

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm trying to get ML working properly on my hack, I was previously on 10.7.3. I have and AMD Radeon HD 6850 and have found it to be problematic just like everyone else; I used the method of deleting ATI6000 from S/L/E and booting with GraphicsEnabler=No to install and then I just installed the stock ATI6000 kext afterwards. Right now my main issue is that at the login screen I see nothing but gray linen. I can type in my password and press enter to login and it works fine, most of the time. Sometimes I'll start it up and the login screen will look normal. Also, I use MenuBarFilter and it's always flashing and glitching out now (this doesn't happen on my MBP).

As far as storage, my drives are not being recognized properly. First they were all shown as externals after installing the 3rd party sata kext, and finder was crashing whenever i would try to open an external drive. I repaired permissions, deleted the kext, reinstalled it, and repaired permissions again, rebooted, and now my drives are shown properly, but my DVD drives is shown as an external.

Has anyone else had issues liek this?


GA-z68xp-ud3, amd radeon 6850, i7 2600k


EDIT: Another problem just starting occurring... The dock crashes randomly and I'm getting crash reports from quicklook helper (forget the exact name) as well.

    • AFAIK, the THB_C header on the motherboard has nothing to do with USB. It's a GPIO, though its use is undocumented.   On Gigabyte and ASRock at least, if you do not connect the THB header, then the TB card won't activate at all, and the BIOS will not show a Thunderbolt entry...   I'm rather amazed that it would work for you in macOS, I'm 99.99% sure your TB is now broken in windows however (and the TB card won't even appear)...   I'm on a different problem now, since I added a 2nd nvidia 1080Ti, just having the TB SSDT causes a kernel panic at boot
    • Why is it im getting Kermel panic if i use Clover's ACPI>DSDT>Fixes>FakeLPC

    • SUCCESS!!! Finally all my THUNDERBOLT devices are hotpluggable!!   The solution is unbelievable, seems to work on all chipsets without using SSDT, and shifts the focus on the cause of all problems Thunderbolt: the cable THB_C!! Already in my previous post I noticed strange behavior by inserting the _DSM method in DSB2: PCIHotplugcapable Zero.
      Since then I've been trying to figure out how the XHC controller affected the Thunderbolt hotplug, until Crismac2013 suggested I disconnect the THB_C cable from the motherboard.
      Once disconnected, it was enough to add as an arbitrary inject my first Thunderbolt address (PXSX): <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>PCI THUNDERBOLT 15d3 first entry</string> <key>CustomProperties</key> <array> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>PCI-Thunderbolt</string> <key>Value</key> <integer>1</integer> </dict> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>IOName</string> <key>Value</key> <string>pci-bridge</string> </dict> </array> <key>PciAddr</key> <string>01:00.00</string> </dict> and it works!! Now I have also added my last SSDT to get PCI information on System info.
      I suspect, however, that in this way the USB-C functionality will be lost, you should do a test!
      In any case this is a huge step forward and makes it obvious that we need to work on XHCs controller to solve the problems with the hotplug with THB_C cable connected.
