Please help me with this 10.9.5 system. Motherboard: Gigabyte 965p-s3 rev3.3, gpu: Ati Radeon HD6450 (dvi/hdmi/vga).
Using any of the 3 ports on the 6450 (dvi, hdmi, vga), I see all the white letters on black background during boot but when they complete and it's time for the graphics to start I get a black screen and sometimes a restart after that. Using Clover 4411. Is there any way to get past this?

I'm new to this site but not totally new to hack. I've had a hack since 10.4 and the latest version I ran was 10.9, not totally fixed but it worked to what I needed. Now I want to make the machine run as good as it can. I can see there has been a lot of changes/upgrades/new solutions since I installed my hack and I have a hard time to catch up.
I've been able to boot and install macOSX and now I need the POST installation.
I tried to install the clover EFI boot loader with these settings:
and found the DSDT.aml and SSDT-0.aml from HERE
found the apfs.efi
and placed it in EFI -> EFI -> CLOVER -> driver64
and these kext in here:
But when I boot it up this is the first bootscreen I have. No partions, no mouse control, no nothing.
