  1. When I first saw this thread i laughed and said yeah that has to be a typo. Then to my amazement it solved an issue i have been struggling with for 6-8 months. I have a HP Pavilion dv6-3050us AMD laptop with the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 that i could never get to boot into the installer. I tried Unibeast,myhack pandora, Niresh ect. I decided for the hell of it to try npci=0x20000 as a bootflag since i always get stuck on pci configuration begin. I went ahead put it in and BOOM SHAMA LAMA DING DONG!!!! . IT WORKED!!!!! If there3 is any Genius's out there that care to explain this i would be happy to know more about this flag. Also Now that i have 10.9 installed i must use npci=0x20000 to get it booted no matter what also i must use USBBusFix=Yes EHCIreset=Yes UHCIacquire=Yes USBLegacyOff=Yes UseKernelCache=No npci=0x20000 in that order then i will get stuck at IOAPIC then i must play around with my mouse usb transmitter and 1-2 flash drives on the left side i have to put them in then pull them out or switch the usb transmitter with the usb flash drive When doing this I will get FAKESMC failed to initialize then what i do is use a flash drive on the front right usb port and all of a sudden it says smc initialized and and it will continue booting. This is quite a process and its super RATCHET!! LOL I am willing to provide anymore info if there is anyone out there willing to help me iron out these issues. So long story short "npci=0x20000" did help me finally get this machine to work and once i do get it booted it runs very smooth..

  3. XFX RADEON R 7850 HD BLACK LOGIN SCREEN

    I am getting a black screen upon login. I had the card working but there seemed to be no acceleration. I saw in the forum that possibly changing some number in the actual kext so i downloaded the modified kext. I checked to make sure the number was changed with text edit. then used kext utility to install the kexts. I rebooted and the login screen is black. To reiterate i can boot but the login screen is black. I have tried 3 different boot loaders and some boot flags and nothing on any of the DVI or HDMI ports just boots to black screen. If you could be so kind and upload what you have as working so i can remedy this issue. Any Help would be greatly appreciated. Im guessing this will involve booting into the niresh install usb. I have that ready. Unless its easier to just reinstall the os. If you need any logs i can provide as long as you have instructions on how to get the log via bootable niresh mavericks usb stick. thank you in advance for your time and effort, DJ 3A$Y MOTHERBOARD-ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 CPU- AMD FX 8350 UNLOCKED BLACK EDITION CPU FAN/COOLER- COOL MASTER GEMIN II GRAPHICS CARD-XFX RADEON R 7850 HD 1GB DDR5, MEMORY- 16GIG PATRIOT 2x8 DDR3 SDD-120 GB SAMSUNG 840EVO BOOT LOADER- CLOVER EFI IS INSTALLED USING CLOVER CONFIGURATOR (I ALSO HAVE CHAMELEON & CLOVER & NIRESH BOOTABLE USB INSTALLER THAT HAS CHAMELEON ON IT) MY ART:)- http://www.mixcloud.com/earl-carol/
