XFX R9-280X not being identified!

Question

Hey guyz please help, I have an FX-8350 CPU and XFX R9-280X GPU but I cannot get graphics acceleration out of my GPU! In -v mode once there was a Vbios error! My GPU has uefi bios on-board (its written on the box) so can that be a reason that my GPU is not getting accelerated?

My GPU gets detected by mavericks in -v mode as "AMD Tahiti graphics accelerator in slot 1" but when I boot up to desktop in system information it says Graphics:Display(7 MB) What should I do?

Hey I installed clover and atleast I get some name for my GPU but still no QE/CI coz it says Vram(Total)-7MB whereas I have 3GB!!

That means it's a frame buffer issue! How to resolve?

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
