Hello.

Im trying to get a r5 230 to work. Clover bootloader. The device id is the same as a hd6450. Which the 6000kext has the device id and 3000kext. But will not load the kext. Only safe boot.

I tried to add the device id to clover fakeid. Any ideas on what to do?

The deviceID=6779 is native so you need no to use FakeID.

All ideas what to do you may read from topic.

If you want a help you have to report step by step how you follow the Post#1.

Hi Slice,

 

I'm trying to patch ATI Radeon HD 6470M (Device ID 0x67601002) with clover to enable graphics acceleration in Yosemite using your guide, but so far I'm not very successful. Please let me know if you can help me. I am absolutely ready to try any suggestions. The laptop is Sony VAIO VPCCA4S1E. I've attached the frame buffers extracted from the AMD6000Controller.kext and the Video BIOS dump showing the available connectors. I'm also using the latest version of the Clover boot loader. My current configuration is:

 

Inject ATI=Yes

FakeID=0x67601002

InjectEDID=Yes (with custom EDID)

PatchVBIOS=Yes

Dual Link=1

FB Name=Hydrilla

Video Ports=5

 

Best regards,

Djuby

 

1002.6760.8001.0200.vga.rom.decoded.txt

Framebuffers.rtf

config.plist.txt

FakeID must be value supported by OSX. It should not be native ID.

FakeID != NativeID

else no sense to set it.

OK. I removed the FakeID. When I enable LoadVBIOS i get a blank screen (the LCD is lit but blank and the system is running). Which is a connector issue. Can you please help me with patching the connectors.

 

Edit: The ID 0x67601002 is supported by OS X. It is present in AMD6000Controller.kext, AMDRadeonX3000.kext.

 

Edit: I can see that only AMD6000Controller.kext, AMDRadeonX3000.kext and AMDSupport.kext are loaded. AMDFramebuffer.kext is not loaded.

Can anybody please help me choose the correct frame buffer in Yosemite for mobility Radeon HD 6470M (0x67601002). It is supported by the OS X. I currently have a working system but no graphics acceleration with SMBIOS iMac 12.1. My previous post has the Clover config.plist. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

 

Best regards,

Djuby

Greetings,

I'm new to Insanelymac community but I appreciate a lot your efforts :)

I have a dilemma: I have an HP g6 2212SL with i5 (intel HD4000 working smoothly) and HD 7670M 2Gb memory.

 

Under Windows, choice of the two GPUs depends via software, since there's no UEFI choice to activate Mobility Radeon.

 

Yesterday I installed Yosemite 10.10.1 using latest Clover release, I used Mavericks for many months with HD4000 working smoothly (but never checked QE/CI if worked, whatever..), and when I looked into Clover boot options I saw that Clover itself recognizes two GPUs (see picture):

So my main question is: is it possible, even if BIOS doesn't allow GPU switch, to start OS X with Radeon? This would be very important for me :)

 

Thanks

Mine shows exactly as yours. Not a misleading answer though but I have read a lot of solutions, threads and so on right here but from what I learnt it is only possible if your machines allows switching graphics in Bios. Well i will also appreciate that if that could work without seitch

 

Understood. I hope that here could be a different answer, because modding Insyde Bios is not so easy as far as I understood by reading a lot on this

Thanks Styrian, I will follow that topic too :) In the meantime, is it possible to dump GPU bios under OS X? I read about GPU-Z but also I read that usually HPs' are tricky to get.

Hello Everybody!

 

I'm kinda new to hackintosh OS. I wanted to install Hackintosh on my Dell Laptop, but in result I cannot get working graphics accelerator. I've tried install iAtkos Mountain Lion(with chameleon bootloader), Yosemite and Maverick(with Clover bootloader). None of them worked graphics accelerator. With chameleon bootloader I set GraphicsEnhancer=True and after loading system(Apple Logo and loading circle), it's showing white and black stripes. On Maverick I tried InjectATI and LoadVBios set to true and I got same result, only this time computer restarted. I've tried installing .kext packages with Kext Utility, same result.
My Laptop Specs - Dell Inspiron N5010

CPU - i5 M480 2.6GHz

RAM - 1066 MHz DDR3

GPU - ATi Radeon HD5650, 1 GB

 

And one strange thing - I can't boot to OSX without USB plugged in. Right now on my Laptop is installed Maverick with Clover.
Any ideas how to get graphics accelerator working?

Again. Tell, please, how did you follow post #1. Step by step.

So I went to /System/Library/Extensions directory. Found AMD5000Controler.kext, checked the plist file, IOPCIMatch contained my Vendor and Device ID 0x68c11002. I did not found AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext, but in AMDRadeonX3000.kext I've added my ID.

It is only half of the work. And seems to be not enough.

And what if you skip the step with BIOS?

So I was playing around with hackintosh today I discovered that driver works, well, almost. The problem is that resolution entry in chameleon plist file is 1366x768, somehow osx does not know this resolution and enables 800x600. So that was why I got white screen lines. I connected external display, and wanted to change resolution to 1366x768, but I did not found. The closest(working) resolution was 1280x768. This resolution works well on Hackintosh, atleast it shows on built in display. Also 1024x768 did not worked on builtin display, but somehow when GraphicsEnabler is off it works. I think same problem was with Clover, just osx did not recognize 1366x768. I'm currently using iAtkos Mountain Lion with chameleon. Any ideas how to get resolution to 1366x768?

"Any idea" is to use Clover and set

InjectEDID=true

Don't think Clover is "the same" and that you can repeat all of this with Chameleon!

m getting full QE/CI with IOReg ROM(Downloaded from internet) in files but not with my ROM(my sys).

 

For the 7650m specifically, here is the data I ended up using: 

FBName

Pondweed (3 Ports) 
ATI Controllers Data 
02000000000100000901010010000505000400000403000000010200110201
0100040000040300000001030021030202 
ATI Controllers Patch
02000000400000000901010010010707000800000002000000010200110201
0110000000100000000001030000000808 
 
but no luck :(
