6950 Whitescreen (Mavericks)

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Specs:
Core i5 2500k
12GB 1333mhz DDR3
ASRock Z77 Extreme6
Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6950 2GB, (Dirt 3 Edition).

-So, I flashed my bios with modded bios file with PMPATCH.
-patched my DSDT
-Followed this guide on how to install 6950 kexts properly. (http://forum.netkas.org/index.php?topic=5484.0)
-Installed Mavericks from ####### with onboard video.
-Booted and installed DSDT with ######.
-Used Kext Beast, installed Oleg_tr's 6950 kexts and proper Eth. Kext.

Boot up with video card in, once boot screen clears, I get a white screen and it just sits there. If I run in safe mode it boots but I don't get full resolution and it doesn't recognize the card. So, what is causing this? I followed the exact steps on how to do this and it doesn't work.

Change the GPU or forget about Mavericks. Currently you can bypass the whitescreen, but its causing random KP in almost every app and thus its useless. Try using your Intel HD GPU and make sure to remove every ATI/AMD kext to prevent the OS X from trying to init the AMD card.

How do I remove kexts from OS X?
