  1. What is your Device ID? Info Radeon HD 7470 (OEM) January 2012 Caicos AMDRadeonX3000.kext 1002, 6779 AMD RADEON HD 7470 Add your Device ID in Info.plist from AMD7000Controller.kext Then look in Info.plist from AMDRadeonX3000.kext, section AMDCaicosGraphicsAccelerator, IOPCIMatch if your Device ID is in it. If not add it.
  2. I agree with Martin, you should not give up on this card. A black screen is not the end of the world. There are some settings to try first. Start with the BIOS with the right Device ID 0x68F9. Then use the Fake ID with Clover. Also try Fake ID: 0x68E01002. Also do not use Shrike as frame buffer. Remove this or use Eulemur. Are you using the VGA port, because the DVI port will give you the best change. Maybe use a DVI2VGA converter. In Clover use 3 ports. And you should change your SMBios to a MacPro3,1. not a iMac. That is the best SMBIOS for you card. You see there are many settings you can try. Personally I think if you use the VBIOS with the Device ID 0x68F9 it will work. You can also try to find a VBIOS that matches your card here: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/77889/sapphire-hd5450-1024-100321 There are many and you should use this option as last because if it goes wrong the card could become unusable. I didn't had time for your config.plist, so please give me some more time. Good luck
  3. Could it be that someone flashed the VIDEO BIOS with a wrong BIOS? Can you pull out the card and read what is printed on it? There is something wrong and if we can’t find it your best chance is to buy another one. The HD5450 from ASUS should be a fine card. Works perfectly for me. A GeForce EN210 from ASUS should also be a easy working out of the box card. And low profile as you asked.
  4. Can you try in Linux or Windows to see what the Device ID is: http://www.osx86.net/files/file/2243-system-info/ I will take look at your config.plist later. So please give me some time
  5. Those images are not protected but lost, sorry for that. http://www.osx86.net/forums/topic/23421-clover-fake-id-hd5450-yosemite-el-capitan/ Find these 3 sections in your config.plist and add/change these values <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>DSDT</key> <dict> <key>Debug</key> <false/> <key>DropOEM_DSM</key> <false/> <key>Fixes</key> <dict> <key>FixDisplay_0100</key> <true/> </dict> <key>FakeID</key> <dict> <key>ATI</key> <string>0x68B81002</string> </dict> <key>RtVariables</key> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x67</string> <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> No need to use Inject ATI because in El Capitan it gives a black screen after sleep with this card. Or upload your zipped config.plist file and I will do it for you.
  6. I always used Pacifist but this one is for free. Thanks c.frio
  7. CCC was made for a Macintosh. For a Macintosh you don't have to copy the EFI partition. So you did the right thing by installing Clover again.
  8. Link is fixed, should work now.
  9. What was the update issue? I think you should remove the DSDT fixes in config.plist, if you have enabled (some) of them. You DSDT contains already those fixes AFAIK. What do you what to edit in the DSDT? It looked good to me. If you want to create a new DSDT you know how to. For my old Gigabyte motherboards I always used DSDT Editor with the patches from MaLd0n. There is a patch for your motherboard too. If you want to start over with your RAW DSDT and want some help, just upload it.
  10. I think you can update, but best is to always make a backup first and then try it on the backup The most important change is always the way how the caches will be updated the right way for your hackintosh. http://www.osx86.net/forums/topic/21313-guide-yosemite-1010el-capitan-1011-usb-bootable-installer_updated/ See point 3. Editing Config.plist -v rootless=0 with injectkexts=Yes/True & <key>RtVariables</key> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x67</string> <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> I think it is already set this way. What rev is your motherboard? rev 1.3 and 1.4 has VIA VT1708S rev 2 has ALC887 Is sound working, if yes, what are you using? I have no doubt that video will work after an update. Not sure about audio.
  11. Nice I've patch your DSDT with the "Shutdown Gigabyte" patch. The same issue I had when using Clover with my old DSDT. Shutdown didn't work properly. With Chameleon I didn't had to use the patch. Lets hope this fix it for you too. DSDTshutdownfix.zip
  12. Did you also tried without assigning a framebuffer? Just like me. If you can't see the EFI folder, you installed Clover in ESP (EFI System Partition). So in this case you have to mount the EFI partition as I told before. There you'll find the EFI folder. You should NOT mess with the EFI backup folder. That is only been used when you install Clover. Because Clover is working now, you should not delete the EFI-backup folder anymore. No, you do not have to start from scratch. Just use the config.plist on the EFI partition in the EFI folder. Clover Configurator has an option to mount the EFI partition. Sorry, I was not clear. My computername is -> GA-P35C:~ rene$ The terminal command is: ioreg | grep ATY But it is only to see which framebuffer is used. Do you still have shutdown issues? If not there is no use to change your DSDT. But I will have a look at it
  13. You should try other framebuffers (later on) as well in this case. They are not stored in the config.plist this way, but thats why I told you to do it this way. After a restart you've always your working config.plist back. Do not test framebuffers with your config.plist. Do it like I told you. First, remember to always backup your config.plist before changing/editing it. You can use "Clover Configurator" http://www.osx86.net/files/file/49-clover-configurator/ Open you config.plist with Clover Configurator. Goto "Graphics" There you can add the framebuffer, video ports and Inject ATI. Try once with Inject ATI and once without it. Upload your DSDT, maybe I can fix it? If needed? If not I need a clean raw DSDT created with e.g. Clover F4 I did some tests with my HD5750: I’m only using “Video Ports” = 3 in config.plist, nothing more for "Graphics". So no framebuffer,, no Inject ATI, no ...... Let Clover decide what to use. In terminal: GA-P35C:~ rene$ ioreg | grep ATY | | | | +-o ATY,ATY,RadeonFramebuffer@0 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x100000237, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (35 ms), retain 8> | | | | | +-o ATY_ATY,RadeonFramebuffer <class AMDFramebuffer, id 0x1000002ce, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (32 ms), retain 17> | | | | +-o ATY,ATY,RadeonFramebuffer@1 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x100000238, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (37 ms), retain 8> | | | | | +-o ATY_ATY,RadeonFramebuffer <class AMDFramebuffer, id 0x1000002d3, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (21 ms), retain 17> | | | | +-o ATY,ATY,RadeonFramebuffer@2 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x100000239, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (39 ms), retain 8> | | | | | +-o ATY_ATY,RadeonFramebuffer <class AMDFramebuffer, id 0x1000002e1, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (13 ms), retain 15> All is working as it should.
