[10.6.8] ATI 6xxx Controller Kext Fails to Load

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I'm running 10.6.8 on an AMD machine (FX-8350) and I've added the Device-ID to the kext and when I boot I get a "PowerPlayManager is malformed" message and "Make sure your Kext is built for the correct headers".

I've been at it for two days on the GFX Card alone. Can someone help me out here? I boot with 

-v GraphicsEnabler=No arch=i386 

I've tried using AtiConfig=Vervet but it doesn't help the situation at all. 

I'd love any help at all! Thanks

ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0

XFX Radeon HD 6750 

AMD FX-8350

My God, I did not seriously leave that information out... XFX Radeon HD 6750 

I managed to boot in 1920x1080 using the org.chameleon.boot.plist
Looks phenomenal, but it's a little laggy sometimes. I've also changed my boot flags since the time of this post.

Got rid of the kexts and put vanilla ones in. Now the message has disappeared but I re-added the device ID and ended up getting a black screen. Removed Device-ID, still black screen.. Removed ATI6000Controller and I can see again.


Getting lost here.

Did you try using other port also? Some ATI's seem to need two DVI devices connected at the sametime as I remember from older posts. Especially XFX and ASUS 5770 had this problem. May be it also applies to yours?

I think I have, but just to be sure, tell me how I can do that please? 

I've tried multiple different flags and I've read many different guides. I even read one that said I don't even need the ATI6000Controller kext.. I think it was kinda >_> BS though..

I've read that it needs to be booted with /mach_kernel and I've seen other posts that don't even specify. I can get my chameleon bootloader screen to say "XFX Radeon HD 6750" and somewhere it will say "Loading Personality: Vervet" 

Then we get to the verbose booting and then the GUI state... This part is always a black screen.

Just try connecting 2 dvi monitors to both outputs in your card someone wrote about ati needed to get edid information on both ports to run. Or you should try kext from i cant remember name but smthng similar to nebraska. Also in truth i already had an ati5770 and tried to make it work but got blackscreen and giving up i tried my old old old 8600gs which ended in success. Also note that opencl implementation is incomplete and inefficient in 10.6. You should try installing at least osx v 10.7

Got myself an ATY_Init kext and it seems to have worked... But the ATI6000 controller kext is malformed- using the ATI5000 Controller kext. The 6750 HD was apparently a re-model of the 5750 HD. Or so I've read... Here goes nothing. 

-- Result --

Malformed and stuck on boot with GraphicsEnabler=Yes AtiConfig=Vervet

I get stuck at the VERY end of the booting process which for me is something like "hfs: zero length symlink on fileid" followed by about... 8 numbers. 
...
Get the same message with "GraphicsEnabler=No" but it boots.
With "=yes", I get the message but it keeps repeating and never progresses into User Land.

          So you can lock this topic again @Allan Hopefully for a bit longer than a couple of weeks this time hehe.
    • ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image?   https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl   the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d.  I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers.   so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it.   thanks again for everyones assistance. HBP
    •     Install from fresh again. This time without Tony Tools, follow some guide in this topic. Install IntelHD kexts as usual in S/L/E and thats it. Everything works again, except for backlight, I never could have this work, also got heating problem and when boots apple logo dissapears from like 5 seconds and then appear the login window... Any ideas on any of this????
