Tried that, not working .... couldn't enable the GraphicsEnabler=Yes flag though because the 5650m didn't work. (actually it worked with LoadVBios=Yes but after changing Scaled > Best For Display, it abruptly stopped working)

tl;dr it doesn't work :(

mobile Graphics and Integrated Graphics  can't works together in OSX ,also you will only able to use Integrated graphics so don't waste time to enabling them try to use IntelhdGraphics

@deadmau5 I dont have that option in my BIOS, only an option to enable/disable Virtualization but i guess dart=0 already does that.

@Deepak The system now is running with software acceleration (1024 x768). I don't have switchable graphics. The ATI5650m was working in full res (1920 x 1080) with Clover's LoadVBios=Yes but stopped working after i changed the display setting from Scaled to Best for Display.

Yes I HAD full QE/CI after using LoadVBios=Yes in the default bootloader, but after changing display settings from scaled to best for display.. it stopped working ... :( I tried the steps again to no avail.. (Doubt : to force EDID do i have to insert the raw data without spaces in the .plist or convert it into HEX ?)

I tried injecting the EDID (The guide says to edit in clover's .plist right ? but i'm using Chameleon [the default], using clover gives me a boot error). The EDID injection didn't work, i injected it into the .plist and the Display-717 but didn't work. Also the ATIXXXX controllers (kexts) have my deviceid and vendor id 0x68c11002. 

 

Here's my EDID in Base64 : 

AP///////wA2fyUAAAAAAAQTAQOAIhN48s5Qo1dMmSYPUFQAAAABAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBGjaAmnA4IkAZM1sAVL4QAAAAGjaAxHE4WEBLlu0AVL4QAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAo=

 

I previously got full QE/CI by just editing the display717 and booting with LoadVBios=Yes, don't know why it's not working now... :(

Thanks for your help @Deepak :) ! Please help me to resolve this issue ...

@Deepak 

These are the steps i took, please tell me if there is any error in this

 

1) Got the EDID in windows and converted raw to Base64 (above)

2) Overwrote the DisplayID-717 file with the edited one using Plist Editor Pro and the new.

3) Ran Kext Utility (to repair permissions)

4) Cleared all other display profile in the colorsync folder 

5) Rebooted with the following flags = GraphicsEnabler=Yes LoadVBios=Yes 

 

Result: I tried 2 times, a black screen popped up, the third time the display loaded up in full resolution but with very blurry and malformed text

Loading with the flag = AtiConfig=Galoga gives full QECI with HDMI output port (TV) but not with the laptop display.

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
