AMD 7850HD + Color Issue

Question

vipulmal    0

Hey guys!

I just finished installing OSX Mavericks on my computer with the following specs:

OSX Mavericks 10.9.4
Intel i5 3450 3.2 GHz

Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H
8GB DDR3 1600MHz

Sapphire ATI Radeon 7850HD 2GB

ASUS DRW-24B5ST

 

My Boot list has the following flags:

 

GraphicsEnabler = No
PCIRoot = 0
UseKernelCache = Yes

GeneratePStates/GenerateCStates = Yes
 

Thanks to the immensely helpful guides on the forum, I finally have a working Hackintosh system. However, I'd like your help on 2 issues:

1. My AMD card shows up as AMD Radeon HD 7xxx instead of 7850HD. Using ioreg | grep ATY in the Terminal shows that the RadeonFrameBuffer is in use, instead of the proper one (Although I'm able to utilise the card fully with QE/CI as confirmed by the ripple test).

I'm unable to boot with GraphicsEnabler = Yes and because of that the ATIConfig flag is rendered useless. If I boot with GE = Yes, I get the 0xdeadbeef (Memory Allocation Error) error. So if someone could suggest me a fix for this thing, it would be really helpful. Also, since I'm using an HDMI Connection, I think that the Audio might not be working because the FrameBuffer hasn't loaded properly, but if someone can shed some light on that as well, it would be totally awesome.

2. My display is having some weird colour issues. I've attached a couple of screenshots below. Basically, it looks like that the colours are bleeding. I don't know if it's related to the FrameBuffer issue, but please help me out on this one. Initially, when my Hackintosh wasn't detecting my GPU (7850HD), the colours were perfect with the spdisplays_display monitor. But after I upgraded to 10.9.4 (as it has inbuilt kexts for my GPU), this problem started. Here are the screenshots:

I would really appreciate some help on the above issues.

Thanks a bunch!

    • 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)
