msi radeon hd6450 issues

Recommended Posts

Im having issues with this particular graphics card...I bought this card for my father as on my mackintosh it worked out of the box....On his however after installation and restart I make it past the apple logo then go straight to a white screen where it stays with no cursor....However if I boot into safe mode and remove amd6000controller.kext then restart I can get to the desktop with very laggy graphics that are horrible.........Ive tried copying amdcontroller6000.kext to the desktop,deleting it from S/L/E and reinstalling it-that actually worked one time but every icon in launchpad was red...After that one successful restart it immediately started freezing at the white screen again....I am a noob to the mackintosh world so if anyone could please help me with instructions on as to how to fix this I d greatly appreciate it so much ,,as I also have to fix the ethernet afterwards....thank you.....Another thing-I am using the dvi connection

 

 

 

EDIT:today I noticed that it was a hit and miss-Sometimes if I booted with"GraphicsEnabler=no" I could boot into the desktop and my graphics were excellent no issues whatsoever....However it was hit and miss because other times when I used that bootflag I d still freeze at a white screen.....At one point I used "-s" bootflag then typed in "graphicsenabler=no" I noticed an error with cpu powermanagement-that was one of the times graphicsenabler=no didnt work........I didnt have the pinkish icons in launchpad on successful boots though.....can anyone help me

 

Ive been reading something about patching with "Pithecia"'''.....could this work in my situation?could someone tell me step by step how to do it?

 

UPDATE:the card Im running is msi radeon hd6450 which has 2gigs of dedicated memory...I spent all night once again trying to make the graphics work then I noticed something-when I first install using hdmi I have perfect graphics and acceleration but right after the niresh permissions fixes go through my screen turns grey for a second and comes back-when it does my icons in Launchpad are pink and as well when I restart the system I get the white screen again...I googled this and there was something about the amd6000controller.kext having permission issues?how do I fix this as to when I repair permissions or nireshs permissions don't break my graphics?Ive been going 3 weeks on this graphics issue and once its fixed I have the joys of making internet work

 

 

 

UPDATE:I VE tried several things including khatphats  hd6450 kexts-nothing works...When I reboot I get a blank white screen...any ideas? I did fix the Ethernet by purchasing an Ethernet card to disable onboard.I know this graphics card works because ive managed to get to the desktop a couple times with awesome graphics

 

 

UPDATE:After a long struggle with the 6450 on and AMD machine I decided to give up and started to read reviews over the radeon hd5450.Everywhere I looked I read bad reviews about the 5450 not working well with mavericks,major issues...So I went out on a limb and purchased the 5450 installed the 5450 and reinstalled Mavericks-LO and behold the 5450 worked  for me....In my intel machine the 6450 worked oob with mavericks but on an AMD not so lucky.However I m not so sure it isnt because the 6450 requires a 450 watt psu and my fathers machine can only use a 220 unless I run the new psu outside the pc due to it being a slimline..The moral of the story here folks is quit reading what works for someone else in the hackintosh world..However Id like to thank KHATPHAT for his 5450 kexts.Very much appreciated

Hey

I have just found out the cause. this is not a problem of the graphics card which is to problem with amd kernel. This problem is called "Pink launchpad icon" that a lot of people have this error and I also was one of them I don't have time to test yet but you can find in here.

    • Well, the pkg is beginning to install High Sierra on my SSD, but then stops with the error code "could not be installed on this computer" 
    • I followed your tutorials which seems to be 1000% easy as its usually around the same as TonyMac, except your installs requires less to do and youve done most of the work too the package which makes it installing for us very easy. Now, the pic below shows a whole bunch of errors and I dont know why. Ive searched these forums and just like the title here, there is none which is odd, because from your tutorials, this shouldnt happen and it seems no one else is running into this problem, HOWEVER, if they did post something like this, Im 1, looking for the fix on high sierra, not sierra or tammy or roger or lutherin, 2 they need to check their titles again because its not helping anyone. I will say I did try installing Sierra Hackintish Zone version and it works all the way up to right after it installs, it tells me "it cannot be installed on this computer", SO....sigh, idk       So, to conclude, I do appreciate the devs here and much respect. Thanks for doing this. But guys, please help a bruh out and tell me how to fix this. Im using windows 10 as my main so do not tell me to go to do nothing on a mac, its the whole point of me coming here is to hackintosh. I do follow instructions fairly           well consider I teach Programming to the Military. My god bless this post and.....my soul too tbh <3       
    • Hello, I want to know what I have to do to install Kexts, use clover configurator, install bootloader, change resolution and how to use multibeast according to my hardware. I'm new to this mac configuration process. For now my hackintosh is pure, with no driver installed wifi, ethernet, graphics etc .. Sometimes when I start hackinstosh gives the Kernel Panic and stops loading on the apple screen, but I reboot and load normally. And also after a few minutes using the macOS it freezes the screen. I used the Hackintosh Zone Niresh Sierra because it was the only one that successfully installed on my notebook. My hardware is: Notebook Samsung Expert x23 Intel HD Graphics 5500 I5-5200U Processor Nvidia Geforce 910M 2GB 8 GB RAM HDD 1TB Bluetooth
    • @Niresh Now i have another Problem! How do i get HDMI Video to work? I'm only getting a Black Screen when i try to connect a Monitor
