It was the ATISupport.kext. Could someone please walk me through getting graphics acceleration working tho? I tried the rampage dev way and everytime i tried to compile it game me many errors, i cant get video bios from my card if i use injectedid and atiinject it says radeon 7770 but with only 4mb of ram

i am currently using 10.8.5 as it was the first one that i could boot into with an fx kernel and actually run...i was trying to run it in the hopes that my card would work out of box...or atleast with little effort

Its not the kernel that is my issue right now i used niresh's release of 10.8.5 annd it works completely fine i can actually boot into it...but during installation i have to backup all graphics kexts inorder for graphics to even show up, if i install the atisupport.kext it causes my screen to go comp,etely white, if i use graphics injection it will read the card with no acceleration and if i use GraphicsEnabler=No now it completely makes my screen go blank. I looked in the kexts that run with my gpu and my card has an id of 0x683d1002 but when i try to boot it it doesnt work properly i guess haha hope that helps better explain my problem

Perhaps try the benaya (or shomething like this (the one with the y)) kernel and boot with the chameleon bootloader and use the following bootflags-v -x GraphicsEnabler=No Kernel=amdfxIm not sure whether i used the kernel bootflag but just try it :)
