I have the Gigabyte RX460 4GB no 6-pin card. I also have HD530 built-in. The HD530 works natively without glitches, just the wake issue.
I would like to use my RX460. I have enabled CPU Graphics as Primary with 64MB DVMT. I have no ig-platform ID and Inject Intel is set to false. I have Inject ATI set to true instead. Monitor is plugged via HDMI to the RX460. Still the system boots using the HD530 so at half way boot the monitor turns off.
What am I missing?
Note: I am running on Clover 4049. macOS 10.12.4
There are a couple of things to check on to make sure they are not interfering with your set-up.
1.) I am using a Haswell based system and found in the upgrade from 10.12.3 to 10.12.4, that the audio patching (CloverALC) had to be modified a bit because it was stopping the connectors from working. [the Realtek kext had to be removed, but the AppleHDA layout resources as well as the Clover patches for recognizing the layouts were kept for motherboard audio.]
2.) (Also coming from 10.12.3 to 10.12.4) @Sitherick found that some DSDT changes had to be made to get the card to work properly, see: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...rs-for-new-amd-radeon-drivers.197273/page-226 #2260
If these are okay, you should be able to get up and running with Inject-ATI = false. Your monitor will have the black screen booting until just after the AMD 4100 kext loads and your graphics card fans spin up. The monitor will turn back on and then after that, the login screen will appear.
That said, you should be able to use Inject-ATI = true, but you will need to use a frame buffer to get it to work. Read through the entry here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...rs-for-new-amd-radeon-drivers.197273/page-224 #2236 and make sure you set FBName to be Berbice in the Clover preferences. I have since gone back and tested the patch with regular (single link) DVI monitors and the patch works just fine with them as well as with dual-link DVI monitors and HDMI and DP monitors. Unless you have very good results, you will only be able to use two monitors at a time though.
Regardless, you will have the black screen on your monitor though the boot process until the kext loads and the log-in screen appears.
