Just posting here to say I just updated to 10.7.5 (a bit late, but I've been afraid to touch it lol), and once again it seems my old problem of enabling graphics and the second display has returned.

My plan is to try to go back and re-patch/write the kext I got from a great user over at --> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/to...-connectors-to-work/page__st__40#entry1811740

I'm wodnering if maybe during the 10.7.5 update, that ati6000 kext got overwritten back to the default kext which didn't work. so hopefully if i replace that with the solution kext from the link above, it will work!

I shall report back my findings after work today :]

Yep well that didn't work :( Managed to reset my whole itunes cache/library thing randomly, so now I randomly lost all my 'modified last' info which I use :/

I think i'm gonna say screw this gfx card and just jump for one that works way easier lol

Believe me, upgrading to Mountain Lion 10.8.3 solved all my problems with my Son-of-Zorro build's 6850 graphics card. It works fine now without any tricks required to install OS X. :thumbup:

Great information, I apologize if you've already covered this, but I couldn't find it. I keep seeing people talk about entering verbose mode and also typing "Graphics Enabler=no". Since I'm using a windows keyboard I do not have the 'command' key to enter verbose mode. And I also do not see any field where I can type commands to set no or yes for "graphic enabler", could you shine a little light on this? I think this is why when I boot off the thumb drive I get about 30 seconds with the grey apple logo until the wheel stops spinning and the system freezes. Any help here is appreciated. Thank you.
