Hi! Thanks for the guide, my Sapphire R9 290 finally works. I'm on High Sierra, and I followed these steps:
- Set iGPU as primary;
- Hex edits of the first post;
- Checked ATI injection;
- Fake Id: 0x067B01002
- FB: Baladi;
- Latest version of WhatEverGreen, AppleALC and Lilu copied in Clover's kexts folder;
- Reboot.
During bootloader and system loading, screen is blank, but after a while, login screen compares.

But I've a doubt and a problem:

Doubt: system sees that there are two monitors connected; one to the iGPU (named "Monitor") and one (REAL monitor) to the 290 (in my case "Samsung"), although I connected HDMI only to R9 290. Is it normal?

Problem: I don't know if it's the right section, but I'm not able to enable HDMI audio. I follow this guide (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/applehda-hdmi-audio-guide.234735/), but it doesn't work. Can anyone help me, telling me how can I enable audio on this GPU? Thanks a lot!




EDIT: I fix audio problem! If I can help someone, FIRST I followed this guide (https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/4sil5p/audio_mechanic_old_patchfix_removal_applealc/), and THEN this (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/applehda-hdmi-audio-guide.234735/).

Hello,
I just want to give a little feedback. I'm currently on Sierra 10.12.6 with working R9 390.
What did the trick for me was what @slead wrote: Oct 13, 2017 at 6:27 PM.
I have a two Monitor setup. Both are working connected to the R9 390. The first at DP and the other at HDMI.
At this moment I'm testing to install High Sierra but have a few problems.

Update:
I managed to install High Sierra by removing my R9 390 for installing.
After install I made the same steps like I did at Sierra to use my R9 but it doesn't work.
High Sierra recognizes my HP Display which I plugged in at a DP Port but I can't see anything at the display.
I have once seen the mouse cursor but nothing more than that or a black picture.
At an HDMI or DVI I get the same result. I also tried "inject ATI" with FB name: Baladi and fake id:0x67B11002.

Has somebody another idea?

BTW: In Sierra I can use my both monitors plugged in at DP and an HDMI.

Where did you download the AppleALC.kext from?

I got my 390 to work somewhat on Sierra but still issues cropping up after security install update.

Hi sorry this is not in the expected format, it was hard enough doing the Mac never mind trying to understand the build post page, well, this isn't really a build post, it's more a R9 290 non X post . Please allow, thnx., after many many attempts to get this Asus R9 290 Direct CU II R9290-DC2OC-4GD5 https://www.asus.com/uk/Graphics-Cards/R9290DC2OC4GD5/ to work on an Asus Maximus Gene VII, i7 4790k 'Sierra' build... , I've finally done it. I'll attempt to explain how with lots of pics and few words. Oh, I'm using the display port at 1440 currently, I have not checked other ports yet.





1. I installed Sierra according to this video,
2.Plugged in the R9 and booted from internal gpu via the bios.
3.Copied this 2 files AMDRadeonX4000.kext and AMD8000Controller.kext from system/library/extensions to a folder on the desktop.
.
4. Right mouse click the AMDRadeonx4000.kext that's in your folder on your desktp and select 'Show Package Contents', then open the 'contents' folder, you will see this
.
5. Have TextEdit program icon in your dock, drag and drop Info.plist on to TextEdit
5. scroll down to the 'AMDHawaiiGraphicsAccelerator part and add the last numbers 0x67b11002 where I have down the bottom of this pic
and save.
6. do step 4 and step 5 on the AMD8000Controller.kext in the folder on your desktop
7. Scroll down to the AMD8000Controller/IOPCIMatch part and add 0x67b11002 to the end of the numbers as I have done in this pic
and save.
8. I used Kext Utility http://cvad-mac.narod.ru/index/0-4 to insert the AMDX4000 and AMD8000Controller kexts from the folder on the desktop back in to 'System/Library/Extensions folder, it also repairs permissions etc.
9.Use Clover Configurator to open the EFI partition.
7.Navigate to EFI/EFI/ClOVER
8 open config.plist with Clover Configurator app.
9. this is how mine looks

save.
10.i used DPCIManager_ML on Mac to get the rom file from the R9 , by clicking the eye next to the card you can select a folder to save it to.

11. I renamed this file to SSDT290 and changed the extension to .aml, SSDT290.aml and put it in EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched folder
, I also downloaded Lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext and put them in EFI/EFI/ClOVER/kexts/Other folder.
12. reboot with PCIe or auto selected via bios and hopefully you will have the same results as i.
