After upgrade from Sierra to High Sierra I just get a black screen after boot. Lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other. I have a AMD Radeon HD5670 graphic card native supported by macOS out-of-the-box until now. What could be wrong? Can someone help. Thanks.

Thanks for your answer.

 

I have don that and I have a High Sierra screen now :-)

 

But it is a little bit shaky and the Dock turned gray with no transparency. Perhaps the HD5670 graphic card is outdated for High Sierra and Metal 2 :-(

Both situations have the same setup and High Sierra runs on Sierra kexts. When I but EmuVariableUefi-64.efi in EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI High Sierra got black screen again. Under High Sierra it locks like com.apple.iokit.IOAcceleratorFamily2 and com.apple.AMDRadeonX3000 is not loaded.

run

sudo kextutil -v /System/Library/Extensions/AMDRadeonX3000.kext

May i ask why must do a rollback it is isn't any fix without rollbacking?

As far as I know there is not, indeed. But I don't have an AMD card myself, so maybe i am missing something. until now the rollback works pretty well, though it's not future proof

Yeah, that's what I thought. How did you install the kexts?

run

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -i /

Depends the hardware you have

 

If you have a CPU with IGPU Graphics injector like Intel HD 3000 or HD 4000, HD 4600

theres is not need to rollback kexts

See here AMD CARD  ;) Also here Saphire Radeon Succès 5570 

I have ATI 5450 and Saphire Radeon HD 5570 working in High Sierra Dell Optiplex 790

no roll back  :yes:

Great  ^_^

Hey Rico, 

 

You seem to know a bit about these issues and was wondering if you could help me?

 

Using a Radeon R9 280X in High Sierra with only one monitor working.  The second one is getting a signal but displaying only a black screen.  Both worked flawlessly in previous versions of OSX.  I've been working at this for months with no joy and followed the steps above too.  When I replace the aforementioned kexts with the Sierra versions my one working monitor defaults to what could be said is a VGA display with weird colours.  

 

I agree with your logic that it's a kext issue and therefore by replacing the kexts that worked in Sierra they should also work in High Sierra but that isn't the case for me.  It has me wondering if the 3000 kexts are the correct versions for HS?  Any further input?

 

Thanks

 

**EDIT** I am convinced it's the DVI that's broken under High Sierra.  Dual monitors still works OK in Ubuntu and Windows 10 so it isn't a hardware issue. Definitely software related. System Prefs picks up both monitors (See image) https://imgur.com/a/qylUp

 

**EDIT2** I was right DVI was not set up correctly. I had to edit a kext file adding frame buffer settings. All sorted now  :)
