Hi, any chance I this method can be used on dell m6600 with amd m8900 graphics ?
Have tried several times over the last year to get mavericks installed but always results in black screen on laptop .
My specs -
8gb ram 1600 MHz
amd m8900 2gb graphics ( no optimus / no switchable graphics in bios )
17.3 '' screen 1600x900 resolution
I'm quite willing to use intel hd only for osx if that's an option ,
as I'll dual boot for amd graphics in windows.
Any help much appreciated , can upload radeon bios output or anything else if required?
Thanks ,Úll Mac
Úll Mac, nobody seems to know how to help when it comes to the FirePro line of cards. I've posted a couple of times on this forum, and on another forum, and all I get is dead air. I have a Dell M6400 with a 1GB FirePro M7740 (with no Intel HD option). The best I've been able to get is native resolution (1920x1200 in my case) with NO graphics acceleration. Fortunately this is sufficient to run Xcode and the iOS simulator, so I'll deal with it. What I had to do to get as far as I did was to set GraphicsEnabler to No in /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist and set "Graphics Mode" to "1920x1200x32" in the same file. In your case, you would set "Graphics Mode" to "1600x900x32", though I'm not sure if such a resolution is a valid VESA mode (i.e., it may not work.)
