About This File

I edited the default Niresh Mavericks AMD7000Controller.kext, AMDRadeonX4000.kext. Install them with Kext Utility. You will need to install AppleHDA for ALC to get HDMI audio working (seems like all ALC codecs work for this, Multibeast 6.4.1 has this, just choose one).

Edit your DSDT and insert the text from the injection file. You'll have to use IORegistryExplorer to locate where GFX0@0 or display@0 is. Look at the device just above it in the hierarchy (mine was PCE2@2). Find that (PCE2 for example) in the DSDT and insert the text before the last bracket for that device. You will also need to add the DTGP method at the top (Google this if you don't know). You may have to change the device you found just above your graphics device to PEGP (Find/Replace All in DSDT). I did this originally and have not undone it to test if you need it.

The injection file uses framebuffer Aji. I edited that framebuffer specifically for this card. The same edit is applied to Hamachi and Futomaki. Any of those should work the same (I was chasing my tail at one point and ended up editing all three of those).

I have this working right now with GV-R785OC-1GD. Please disregard the resolution shown in System Information. I have a DLP TV, it's hard to see from way back here. 1080p works fine for me, just too small from the couch.

If you are having audio distortion, open terminal and type "yes > /dev/null" without quotes and hit enter. This is a cheap workaround for AMD systems, I've heard disabling AMD TURBO in BIOS may solve this as well.

Good Luck!

        After installation stuck on Apple logo with spinning wheel
        Having some trouble getting Mavericks to boot, after I select the hard drive that I installed it on it goes into a gray apple loading screen with a spinning wheel, after a minute or two it freezes and will not boot.
        My specs:
        AMD Fx 6300 Six-core Processor  
        MSI 970A-G43 Mobo
        Evga Geforce Gtx 750 ti

        Some time ago, I tried dual-booting Yosemite with Windows Vista on the same drive, as I don't have access to another. I successfully installed it and almost everything seemingly worked perfectly, with the exception of sound and wifi, I had yet to even try to get my sound working on it, it wasn't a big priority at the time (though next time, I'd like to get it working right away if possible), and I just used an external wifi adapter while running OS X.

        Anyway, I noticed when going back on Windows, the generic volume driver would be missing, and the only way to restore it was to do a system restore, which would allow Windows to reinstall it. I feel this could be related to the fact that I didn’t even have sound working on OS X in the first place, but I can’t say for sure. I’m probably incorrect. Anyway, I didn't think much of it at the time, but then a much larger problem occurred.

        After waking up from sleep mode on OS X (which had actually worked fine up until this point), HDMI stopped working. My monitor was showing nothing, and I ended up forcing my computer to shut down only to find that HDMI still wasn't working at all. I couldn't see anything, even outside of OS X. I eventually attached another monitor via VGA, which allowed me to see everything again, I then booted into OS X to find that HDMI would work in that, but still nothing else. The only way to fix it was to again to a system restore on Windows.

        After that, I removed OS X and I haven’t bothered with it since, however I would still very much like to dual-boot OS X with Windows again. Is there anything I can do to avoid these problems in the future? Thanks in advance.
