but, it was a radeon x1300 pro before. idk, i give up on googling all over the place. what can i do.


IM NOT TRYING TO FIX THE MISTAKE OF CALLING IT A RADEON HD 4890! im trying to find a proper kext for this card so i can enable QE/CI. thats it!

Follow this:


1. Do a clean install


2. Copy the Controler and GPU kexts for your GPU from S/L/E


3. Add your device ID's to the kext and install them and restart


4. Use the framebuffer drop tool found on this fourm (pined in the ATI fourm)


5. Use boot flags to test these one by one. The drop tool breaks it down by which kext it is from.

      Hi all
      I currently use an NVidia 760 with four displays: 1 x 4K; 2 x 1920x1200; 1 x 1920x1080.   This mostly works, but I am considering replacing it with an AMD GPU - likely a Radeon 7970 - for two reasons:
      I would like to add a fifth monitor, maybe even a sixth; I get small stutters and slowdowns with my NVidia, using both Native and NVidiaWeb drivers.  It is a lot better than it was with my NVidia 980Ti, but it's still not perfectly smooth as it should be, especially when I have a full screen video playing while also doing UI movements like Swipe Left A Space or Mission Control.  
      I have just been told that it should be possible to access all display outputs on an AMD 79XX GPU, possibly requiring a custom SSDT and/or radeonDeInit?  I've only ever had one AMD GPU and that was 8 years ago so I am not experienced with them.  My NVidia 980Ti has five outputs, but can only use four at once.  But I believe AMD's EyeFinity does allow it to use them all as separate displays.
      Before I buy the GPU, I'd be most grateful if anyone could confirm that it should be possible to run five or six simultaneous displays on a card such as the ASUS HD 7970 DirectCU II (6 x DP outputs) or XFX AMD Radeon HD 7970 (2 x mini-DP; 1 x HDMI; 2 x DVI).  With one display being 4K @ 60fps and the rest 1920x1200 or 1080P.
      I have Googled on this a while but haven't yet found anyone discussing connecting more than four monitors to an AMD Hack  I did see that the late-2013 Mac Pro (which uses 2 x AMD FirePro GPUs) states it can support "up to 6 Thunderbolt displays".  So I know the OS can do it, it's just a question of whether a particular GPU can, and in a Hack setup.
      Thanks very much

      Hi Insanlymac’ers.
      I have a super deal on a WX9100 Radeon Pro Vega, but I only have 12 hours to repond, or it’s gone.
      Is this card able to run in High Sierra and take advantage of all 16GB ram?
      Thanks in advance!

      Vorrei solo un piccolo aiutino nel post installazione su questa config
      Zotac GeForce GTS 250 1024 MB
      1) Non riesco ad attivare l'audio , e so che mi sto perdendo in un bicchiere d'acqua
      2) Vorrei sapere se il config.plist è configurato bene per la mobo
      3)poi nn capisco perchè dopo il boot vedo un kernel panic ma dopo  va tutto liscio..bah
      spero che mi aiutate in questa config

      What works? Everything. Sleep/Wake, NVMe, Airport, Spotlight, AMD-graphics

      ASUS Prime B250M-C µATX-board
      Intel Core i5 7500 (Kaby Lake)
      Gigabyte Radeon RX560 4GB
      Airport-compatible PCIe-Card for Wifi and Bluetooth (BCM943602CS)
      2 NVMe drives: Samsung P961 with 1 TB and 256 GB

      Installed mac OS: 10.13.2
      Clover: 4334
      *Update 10.13.3*
      Added new config.plist and ssdt for AMD injection (config_amd_ssdt_10133.zip). With this config and Intel IGPU activated you'll get Metal2 (macOS GPUFamily1 v3). What did I do? Had to fake Skylake graphics or to prevent apps like iMovie or FinalCut from crashing. With Kabylake kexts loaded and IGPU as secondary graphics card, the computer will hard reset whenever the Intel GPU is utilised. Only Skylake kexts and activated IGPU will give you working Metal2 for the RX560.  
      *Update 10.13.2*
      Since this update a new approach is advisable to get the RX560 up and running (works for 10.13.1 and GM as well). I've added a working SSDT and injector kext that gives you graphics and HDMI audio. Sleep works fine too if you add the DSDT I compiled.  
      Credits go to @Toledo @Mork vom Ork and @Mieze because their work made this possible.
      *Update* I've added NEW config.plist and DSDT. For proper graphics power management you have to activate onboard graphics in BIOS but make PCIE the primary display. Furthermore you have to inject ig-platform-id 0x59120003 and let Clover patch GFX0 to IGPU. This is the only way to avoid crashes of iMovie, FinalCut or slowdowns after video playback.

      This may be the smoothest Hackintosh of my life. It is easier than Sierra install due to native support for most of the used hardware in High Sierra. Not much to do, using an up-to-date Clover version like 4184. Make sure you have apfs.efi in /Clover/drivers64UEFI/ on your EFI partition and that you delete EmuVariableUEFi.efi (downside: iMessage doesn't work without it). Somehow Rehabman's SSDT in /Clover/ACPI/patched helps avoiding crashes in iTunes.

      Needed kexts (on your EFI into /Clover/kexts/Other): FakeSMC, IntelMausiEthernet for ethernet, USBInjectAll and XHCI-200-series-injector for USB, Lilu and AppleALC for audio, Whatevergreen for AMD graphics, IntelGraphicsFixup and AMD9xxxControllerPatcher.kext.
      DSDT and SSDT go into EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched.

      Hi guys, I Have an ASUS N752VX, and I've installed mac OS High Sierra, in my laptop. Unfortunately I have some problems with kexts.
      - Touchpad I2C,
      -  Ethernet.
      P.S. Maybe , the second one, is caused by my USB Wi-fi, because my wi-fi module seems to not work 'cause it is not compatible!
