    I installed Mac on my signature rig (GPU: HD 5750;SC: Realtek Onboard) and I can't seem to find a proper ATi driver for MAC OS so my desktop is stuck at 1024x768. And can't seem to find any audio drivers either. :( Can someone please help me. I tried Google but no luck. Any help will be appreciated. :)

    Yeah, I don't think there is an official 5970 Mac driver since the 5970 isn't available in a Mac version. It would probably require some kind of hacked driver from another card. Your audio card might even be harder to find a driver for since nothing like that exists on the Mac side.

    This is the kind of crap that got me to stop messing with my Hackintosh. I got tired of all of the hassle. It's one thing if you don't ever upgrade and don't want the newest hardware. I would check out the OSX86project/InsanleyMac forums, you would probably get the best help there.

    Yeah i already tried that. But no luck :(

    I did already check OSx86 and InsanelyMac but couldn't find what i wanted. And i installed on my signature rig which has Realtek Onboard Audio and a Sapphire HD 5750.

    Oh sorry, I just looked at "System Specs".


    Did you see this? It sounds like there might be a driver for the 5xxx series! It might really help getting the 5750 working. Sounds like you have to download a .kext and then edit another...

    As far as the Realtek audio I'm not sure. Usually it just involves finding the right extensions. What Realtek chipset is it? (ALCxxx)

    I installed the .kext file using KEXT helper. Now when i go to "About This Mac" it says ATi Radeon 5700 Series. So i guess it worked. :) But still my resolution is stuck at 1024x768 :( Can it be because i have connected HDMI->DVI ? And the Realtek Chipset is ALC662.

    Yeah, you have to have some patience when dealing with a Hackintosh, which I don't. :)

    Well my patience ran out. :) I searched forums and blogs and so many other places. I just couldn't take it anymore. lol I installed Mac OSx to enjoy the simplicity of it, not waste hours trying to configure it lol :laugh: Only way to properly enjoy Mac OS is on a Mac. :shadedshu:cry:
