ATI Radeon Sapphire HD4870 no 3D acceleration

Recommended Posts

Hello, my Hackintosh is up and running thanks to Niresh 10.8.2 distro, also updated to 10.8.4 using an combo update from apple.com and everything is really working great, except 3D acceleration. I'm booting with GraphicsEnabler=Yes.

 

Does anyone have any experience on what drivers I should use? 

 

Additional info is that i can play Minecraft with good fps, but when i try games like Garrys Mod or HoN it just does not work, no 3D objects are loaded in-game.

Hello, 

 

I've installed 10.9 using niresh. And I'm facing graphics, sound and usb wifi issues. 

 

I've got Asus M4A87TD/USB3 motherboard, Sapphire HD 4830 gpu and AMD Athlon II X3 cpu. 

 

Could you please guide me through what you have done to be able to use your system with the graphics.

Hello @nartcan, sorry for the late answer. I've been very busy the last couple of weeks. 

I've upgraded my Radeon HD4870 and replaced it with a R9 270X card. 

I solved the 3D acceleration problems by reinstalling my computer.

When it comes to installing hackintosh it's usually (in my experience) the kernel that is causing problems. But if you're certain that your graphics is causing problems I would recommend checking if you need GraphicsEnabler or not. Usually HD cards like mine (also R-Series) does. If you want help I will need you to be more specific and include things like: Bootflags, kernel, specs on your PC, errors et.c. A good tip is including your computer specifications in your signature like i have.

    • Hi, everyone, thanks for your time.
      I'm trying to fresh install macOS 10.13.1 (Build 17B48). I'm trying to do this by free myself from multibeast and by put kexts in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.3 and set a good config.plist.

      I have this famous issue in verbose mode and can't boot.
      IOConsoleUsers: time(0) 0->0, lin 0, llk 1,
      IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0
        It's looks like your own issue.

      Every time, i can boot the first time. I start my post-install by install the web drivers automatically served by Nvidia. And never be able to boot again…
      I didn't found any plist option that permit to boot over this issue…
      help… !

      Thanks for your time…

    • Please install Niresh Yosemite now, at the first boot after installation i have full resolution with the intel hd 3000. after repairing permissions etc etc, i do not have any more acceleration at the new reboot. Sometimes by booting pennete I have acceleration graphic, starting from hard disk n. Ah, I got the Chameleon bootloader
