Incorrect Resolution - Troubleshooting - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Question

Hi everyone,

 

i've spent the last week trying to figure out how to get the correct resolution which is "1366x768" for my graphics. my card seems to be compatible with the pre-installation kext and i can't seem to figure out what the problem is.

 

i have tried to change it in the display with the option button, but my resolution still won't show in the selection. i have tried the chameleon.plist string but it still doesn't correct the problem.

 

should i downgrade to Mountain Lion or Lion? would that fix my problems?

 

 

any advice or solution would really be appreciated!

 

Thanks!

When i install clover as a boot loader, do i need to a fresh since i've already installed chameleon? or do i just install it directly?

Thanks for the reply btw!

clover is also like Chameleon but has more features --use clover configurator similar as Chameleon Wizard to configure you Config.plist 

 

select Graphics/Ati/Inject

I booted from Clover EFI usb and activated "Inject ATI, EDID, VBIOS" in the graphics option

worked great! 

 

 

I guess i have to re install Mavericks again since i've installed chameleon on the setup i've made earlier, unless you can refer me to another loophole/procedure to installing clover as the main bootloader for hackintosh

 

Thanks for the help!!

just download Slytherin or Clover .pkg for installing ...it will automatically rule over Chameleon and you will not lose anything ,,,if you a want Fresh installation that will also better but your choice ..

    • 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)
