DSDT injection for 7970

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 7970 Ghz (Vapor-x) and I would like to inject it into DSDT to use the right framebuffer (so it will show in about the mac not 7xxx but 7970)

I tried it using this guide http://rampagedev.wordpress.com/2012/12/04/about-amd-7970-working-with-full-qe/ but I don't know how exactly inject it.


So I attached my DSDT here and could anyone patch it for me?

Well, your DSDT works better :-) , OS X recognized card fully properly (even slot number). Thanks for helping 

Out of the show.

Do not forget that.

Indeed - hail to Rampage Dev and Rogiervd...


Maybe I can get also a proper DSDT injection, please?


Well, first my story:

How to get a proper IOreg file, after having only a partly working Hackintosh? With partly working I describe two different situations: first, one that works with the 7970 but only a few MB of graphics (not really properly recognized) OR second, a system that works in -x mode. Would one of them deliver a proper enought IOreg file?


Thanks for your help!





I have:

- MacOSX 10.8.4

Sapphire ATI Radeon VAPOR-X HD 7970 

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H


What is working:

With Chameleon I can use my Mac via the Gigabyte graphic card - but only on a "basic graphic mode" with ATI7000Controller.kext removed and GE=No.


With installed ATI7000Controller.kext and GE=No it is only working in -x mode.


With GE=Yes it shows quickly after start a Memory allocation error.


On my wish list:

A working MacOS with a full support of my HD 7970.

Hi Guys.

Used DSDT Editor to Copy paste the code inside my DSDT. It works!
But how do i inject Framebuffers?

MY DVI is enough for me, dont need the HDMI.


Do i need to inject Framebuffers? Will get extract more juice from the GPU using Framebuffers?
