Help with Full Acceleration AMD R7 370

Hey guys, I've been fiddling with creating my hackintosh for a while and I'm having some issues I can't seem to break past. Here is my specs:  

Mobo: Asus M5A97 LE R2 
GPU: AMD R7 370 
CPU: AMDFX 6300. 
I'm working with 10.10.5.

First, I should say that I'm using chameleon. I've edited the AMDRadeonX4000 and the AMD7000Controller kext to include 68111002. Now, whenever I boot without the -x flag I only get a grey screen with an infinite beach ball. With safe boot I get a fairly functional desktop with AMD Radeon HD 7xxx 4096 MB in About This Mac. I still don't seem to have QE/CI. Whenever I use launch pad I watch as the computer places down each overlay painstakingly. And, while using notes the computer continually seems to refresh the window with every blink of the insertion point. I mention these things because I've always assumed that this problem was with a lack of QE/CI.

Kextstat shows:

68 2 0xffffff7f80f82000 0x126000 0x126000 com.apple.kext.AMDSupport (1.3.2) <67 66 11 10 7 5 4 3 1>
69 0 0xffffff7f810a8000 0x4de000 0x4de000 com.apple.kext.AMD7000Controller (1.3.2) <68 66 11 10 5 4 3 1>

75 0 0xffffff7f8165c000 0x24000 0x24000 com.apple.kext.AMDFramebuffer (1.3.2) <68 66 11 10 7 5 4 3 1>

I assume one of my major problems is that AMDRadeonX4000 is not loading. When I use the kextload command my output is:
/System/Library/Extensions/AMDRadeonX4000.kext failed to load - (libkern/kext) operation/kext not allowed at current boot level; check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8).

I assume this is because I'm booting in safe mode but I can't be sure. 

Do you guys have any suggestions? Thank you.





Do you have GraphicsEnabler on Yes in your org.chameleon.Boot.plist?


Setting GraphicsEnabler=Yes causes the computer to no longer send any output. Monitor just goes into sleep mode. I tried booting into safe mode and without safe mode.


I'm not sure if this is related but when booting I get an error that reads something like "non string smbios found in config file".
