My specs:

 

AMD PHENOM II X6 1090T (3.2 GHz) 9MB 938p 125W BE

Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5

MUSHKIN 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-10666 9-9-9-24 SILVERLINE

NVIDIA 9800GT 512 MB

19" Samsung SyncMaster 940BW

 

I installed 10.6 with modcd. After OS installation I installed chameleon and wizard. My monitor works with 1440*900@75 but I'm getting only 1024*768@60

 

When I try to launch macos from through chameleon I'm getting this error.(see below) I think it's graphics card related error.

I didn't install any dsdt or kext? file.

 

Could you please help me about to fix this error.?

 

many thanks in advance and sorry for my poor English.

Hi!

 

WIth this setup, you really should try Lion instead of Snow Leopard. Install Lion 10.7.2, use this kernel http://www.mediafire.com/?orf9jtvwqdr7adm, boot with arch=i386 or arch=x86_64 (both modes are reported working: use the most stable for your setup) and also -nossse3bit npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=Y.

 

Report results and ask help here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285181-lion-kernel-testing-on-amd-split-in-progress/

I gave a last chance and I started with i386 after a 20 minutes I could see desktop with good resolution. Tried again same.

 

After a install I didn't download any kernel. Should I try with new kernel, which one?

Combo update 10.6.8 pc is restarting own.

 

after combo update before the restart I downloaded Legacy Kernel 10.6.8_dyld_no IOPC.pkg and Legacy_kernel_V8_R2 patch DYLD.zip + ##### 3.8.0 and patched IOPCIFamily Fix, fix permissons

 

After a newstart changed chemeleon with Chimere and when I select macos icon after a some second pc is restarting. I think chimere load mach_kernel instead of Legacy kernel

 

Could you please help me? Here is the short video:

      This is bothering me for a long time now: Why does Apple deliberately disables the the RX4xx, RX5xx capabilities to hardware encode HEVC and is using Intel Quicksync instead? Is it to make the iMacPro look better than it is? I stumbled over a thread at tony-mac where people are going a totally different road for Radeon graphics. Instead of hassling around with getting Quicksync to work, they proposed to activate the AMD hardware renderer for Polaris GPU's. I tried it out and it works...somewhat
       
      I used a dummy kext from that tomato thread and edited it, so that it enables the AMDU7V4 IOGVACodec like on Vega cards, switched to iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS from iMac18,3, disabled the IGPU and the results were astonishing:
      My 3:34min 4k50p film was rendered by FCP with HEVC in 2:34 minutes. Nearly half the time than with Quicksync! With the iMac18 SMBIOS and the "help" of Intel Quicksync it took FCP 4:41 minutes to get it done!
       
      The problem is: As soon as the "wrong" IOGVACodec is enabled H.264 encoding leads to Mojave crashing at once (be it FCP, QuickTime or Videoproc). Watching H264 material is fine, though. 
       
      If anyone has any idea how to handle this, I would be very grateful. I would even accept Mojave using software encoding for H264 if I could keep this amazing speeds on HEVC!
       
      BTW: Without IGPU on iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS no problem with DRM or iTunes, no need for Whatevergreen or Shiki. That is a bonus

      Possiedo questo Acer è vorrei sapere se secondo voi è possibile installare Mac OS high sierra partizionando un hdd e mantere anche Windows. Premetto che ne capisco poco. 
      Processore A9 9420 Scheda video condivisa Radeon R5. Se volete altri dettagli chiedetemi perché non so cosa altro aggiungere.

      if a web driver is NOT installed, what happens??
       
      I used AMD RX560 in Sierra, but it is very unstable. usually gpu crash or window server crash occurred.
      so now I attached nvidea Quadro FX1700 to my Sierra. I know FX1700 works well in High Sierra, but I haven't tried it in Mojave yet.
      FX1700 works well without any additional kext, even nvidia web driver.
       
      I plan to buy a nividia card. I would like to know if a nvidia card, especially kepler, maxwell, pascal, works without web driver.
      just curious.

      Hi guys,
       
      So, this little tutorial is meant to help people fix a new issue with Mojave: opening jpg files (looks like it happens with larger files, not so much with smaller ones) using Quick Look (on spacebar key pressed) or Preview app using the dedicated GPUs.
      The issue is that, when trying to open jpg files (for some reason, it doesn't occur with pngs), the pop-up window would remain in an endless loop. And from that point forward, any other app trying to open the same file, will either become unresponsive (in the case of the Preview app) or just stay in endless loop (in case of Quick Look)
       
      As a workaround, in case the tutorial below doesn't work for you, you can use Grab (built-in app in MacOS) to open said files.
       
      This issues DOES NOT occur using the iGPU. So...if you're comfortable using the iGPU, just switch to that and you should be good to go. You don't need this tutorial.
       
      This tutorial is based on @Cyberdevs' research and testing on this topic (especially useful if you're using an RX series AMD video card), and my own very limited time testing this on my rig. I just thought it would be useful to create a new thread for it so that people can discuss this particular issue here.

       
      With that being said, I'll just move on to the actual tutorial.
       
      New (probably better) method.
       
      Switch your SMBIOS in Clover config in regards to the dedicated GPU you're using, instead of the CPU. Take a look here and choose the corresponding SMBIOS closest to your hardware.
      Yeah, that's it.
       
      In case you lose CPU PM with this method, there are multiple ways to fix that, and they do not make the object of this thread.  It worked perfectly fine for me though and I didn't need to change anything else.
       
      A simple Lilu plugin
       
      Thanks to vulgo for the plugin and @Matgen84 for sharing and testing it, we now have yet another possible solution to this issue. It's a Lilu plugin (which means that it requires Lilu.kext in order to work) it's called NoVPAJpeg, and it can be downloaded from here.
      You use it as a regular kext, alongside Lilu. I prefer (and recommend) using it within the EFI folder, in Clover/kexts/Other. But if you want to use it in S/L/E, that should work just fine.
       
      More info can be found in this post here.
       
      In case you wanna try alternative medicine  ...
       
      The main thing we need to do is actually very simple: we need to enable the iGPU (integrated GPU) by default, in BIOS, while actually being connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      For ATI GPUs (curtesy of @Cyberdevs' post here).
       
      The discreet GPU should be set as primary in BIOS and your displays should be connected to your discreet GPU
      The iGD/iGPU/iGFX must be enabled in BIOS/UEFI as the secondary GPU.
       
      I removed the DSDT Reconfigured the config.plist to and removed some flags which weren't needed because of the DSDT added the InjectATI + Ornioco Framebuffer (I removed the Orinoco framebuffer because of some weird glitches but it might be useful for other AMD GPUs if you inject the correct framebuffer according to your GPU. No need to inject anything for nVidia GPUs unless your GPU needs it) Added the InjectIntel + ig-platform-id for my intel HD530 (for intel HD 530 I use the 0x19120001 ig-platform-id)  
      Steps 5 to 7 might not be necessary I just did them anyway, if anyone succeeded to get quicklook working without those steps let me know so I can exclude those steps.

           Also confirmed to work with AMD R9 270X on a SandyBridge rig (without an iGPU) using WhateverGreen + Lilu kexts, which also helped to solve the transparency issue along with the Quick Look problem, it also resolved the buggy Screen Capture (Command+Shift+5) issue as well. 
       
          Also, do:
      nvram cleanup kextcache & prelinked kernel rebuild reboot  More info on that here.
       
       
      For NVIDIA GPUs
       
      This is what I needed for my NVIDIA rig and the MSI motherboard in the signature. Your milage may vary, depending on your hardware. But, the idea should be the same regardless.
       
         For MSi motherboads (check out my motherboard details in the signature)
       
      Set your BIOS to use PEG (dedicated GPU) so you can boot.
      Since you're reading this, chances are that you're already connected to the dedicated GPU and the BIOS is set to PEG. So just go into BIOS and see if you're using the iGPU or the dedicated (PEG) graphics device by default.
      If you're already using this, skip to Step 3 (the part AFTER Reboot). Reboot (I think you don't necessarily need to boot into the OS...but you do need to reboot at least until Clover UI) Reboot back into BIOS and set it from PEG to IGD (integrated graphics) WITHOUT removing the cable. Save Reboot again.  
         The result should be that the OS is tricked into thinking you're booting with the IGPU when in fact you're using the dedicated GPU.
       
         For Gigabyte motherboards
       
         Set:
      Peripherals -> Initial Display Output -> iGFX Chipset -> Internal Graphics -> Enabled
           DVMT Pre-Allocation -> default 64M.
           DVMT Total Gfx Mem -> default 256M Save Reboot  
         You should do this with the cable connected to the dedicated GPU.
       
      You will also need to patch the iGPU from Clover config.
      1. Graphics -> Inject Intel (UNCHECK Inject Nvidia or ATI if it's checked).
      2. ig-platform-id (in my case for Intel HD 4600 Desktop) it was: 0x0d220003
       
      And use IntelGraphicsFixup.kext (now included into WhateverGreen.kext) in Clover/kexts/Other. In my particular case, without the kext, I would get freezes in Safari.
       
      This might be a bug with Mojave and it could be fixed by Apple in the future. but in the meantime, feel free to use this if it helps you fix the issue.
       
      For HP motherboards (including laptops), so far no solution, unless the BIOS somehow allows to switch from eGPU to iGPU and vice-versa.
       
      Cheers!

      And My nVidia 9300GE always need to fix reboot error with NVDAStartup.kext.310.42.25f01.zip from nawcom since 10.12.
       
      Download all the patche kexts here. All works fine here too.
      It's better to use Kext Utility.app to install kexts.
