msi radeon hd6450 issues

Question

demogoroon    1

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.

@- I did that,I made a copy of the amd6000controller.kext before I installed the os one time...after permissions finished i deleted the corrupt amd6000controller.kext and installed the new one that was fresh...Upon rebooting I was hit with the white screen...Once I removed the 6450 graphics card and installed the os using onboard graphics thinking amd6000controller.kext would be good if I installed the 6450 after the install- I was correct,it did work however upon reboot I was hit with the white screen again froze......

I honestly don't think it matters if I skip nireshs permissions because at one point or another I m going to have to repair permissions anyway and its going to screw up I m sure...let me also add I m running this same card on my system and I have no issues at all with it even after permissions,,,The only difference i see is my system is intel and his is amd

    • 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)
    • 980m+intel 530, 6820hk 512ssd+120ssd+1TB im trying to install macOsierra, and i tried a lot of combinations of arguments and configuration, nothing seems to work, i got the same problem every time ofter i start the installation! Is saying: System uptime in  nanoseconds: some random numbers.
