I have a trouble-maker AMD graphics card. When I remove the card and run off the onboard graphics via the HDMI port the unibeast freezes on the apple screen after I select USB. Very frustrating! Anyone know what I can do?

I finally managed to install ML on my Intel Core i7 3770K Ivy bridge CPU with Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3 with UEFI BIOS and runs like a ferrari. I still have an older Shuttle SH67H7 barebone with Core I7 2600 CPU and thinking of upgrading this machine to ML.

Hello to All,
I am newbie here want to install ML on my Intel Desktop Motherboard DG41RQ Processor= core 2 Quad 2.6Ghz, RAM=4GB, Graphic Card is ATI Radeon HD 5450. I am using USB created with Multibeast 5.2 things went wrong when I pluged the ATI Radeon HD 5450 Graphic Crad. It stuck on boot with teh message "Pci Configuration Begin" I've tried multiple switches e.g.. PCIRootUID=1,GraphicsEnabler=NO,YES, Boot Verbos Mode and Safe mode blah blah, if I remove the card and run the pc with builtin graphic which G41 Chipset and GMA 4500 it runs fine but there is no driver for this VGA( Atleast I could not Find on the net).

My BIOS configuration is Core Multiplex Tech = Enable, MAX CPUID Value Limit=Disable, Drive Configuration = Legacy Sata Only, PCI Latency Timer =32 ,HPET=Enable, UEFI=Enable XD Tech= Enable, Intel VT=Enable.

Please help me to install Mountain Lion on my Mobo with that ATI Radeon HD 5450 card.

Sorry if I missed any point needed to solve my problem, you can ask but Please help me I am curious to fix it up.

Thanks and Regards,

I've already posted the same on an other forum and got the answer ........

First try with DVI and not VGA. If you can't get it working with this see my post, I've my dell working with a ati 5350hd

I get the kext here

and my reply for it....

Thanks for your response! alespardo

my problem is that my system stuck while installation I've tried many switches but screen freeze at this point...

IOPIC:Version 0x20 Vectors 64:87
ACPI:System State [s0 s3 s4 s5] (S3)
PFM64 (36 cpu) 0xf10000000, 0xf0000000
[pci configuration begin]

I googled and found many tweaks one of them which change or add one line to above is ....

-v -x npci=0x2000 pci-off busratio=20

it add extra line "resolution 1024 x 768 @f00000" to above

NOTE: I can easily install Mountain Line after removing Graphic Card which is ATI Radeon HD5450 and thanks for sharing the driver(kext) link I've already found it on the net by google. so problem occure when I plug the Graphic card I don't know but there must be solution e.g..a switch or bios setting or tweak for it thats what I am asking and searching for.

Thanks ...


Now please your term to help me out.....






Hey

I would like to help you with your problem about the graphics card. First thing I'd do is use the latest Multibeast. Have you tried? How are you getting on?

In addition, when you say you got your system running with GMA 4500, what were your multibeast settings? Did you enable the Graphics enabler? Did you use additional kexts?

Best

Can someone help me with this? I tried creating a USB Mountain Lion and Unibeast got stuck at 16% and said it was going to take 10 hours to complete. The time kept increasing as well lol :banghead:

Does anyone know how I could do this? I was using lion to create the USB installer?

This is well documented that the screen time is just plain WRONG. Takes about 20 minutes if I remember correctly. Let it run.

I just got my build completed with Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 MOBO and a GTX680 graphics card. When I try to boot from my newly created Mountain Lion USB it goes to the Apple Icon for a just few seconds but then the screen goes black and nothing happens. I was very careful to create my USB per the instructions at Tonymac. I also chose only parts that were listed on Tonymac for a smooth build (or so I thought). I have also tried using different PCI slots and both DVI ports. Still nothing. Maybe there is a setting that I need to change in my bios (?) I changed sata to ACHI but that was the only setting I could find to work with. There is no 'Quick Boot' to change to "NO" as recommended that I can find in this bios.

I have tried all of the alternate commands like: -x -v GraphicsEnabler=No, etc. I have spent hours trying to figure this out and cannot move forward. I can't get past that disappearing Apple logo to install ML from my USB. Any ideas as I am about ready to throw in the towel.

You need to set PCIRootUID=0 I think. It's been a while since I played with my X79.
