Looks good but the only device not working for me is my Radeon 6770 on mac os and apparently there's no way to solve this without flashing its bios. Since i need it for windows also it seems i'm stuck unless i get another graphics card.

here is kext which you need to enable your 6770 http://www.osx86.net/file/8-ati-radeon-hd-6770-os-x-109/


Thanks for the help Deepak, i had tried this one before along with 2 others i found on that site that came down as 3185-Radeon 6770 and 3794-Radeon 6770 new kexts. I used kext helper to install them, did disk repair permissions each time then rebooted but every time i click about this mac and go to display it shows as vmware svga ii 128mb.


Could it be i'm doing something wrong? I mean do i need to delete the originals already in that folder first or something? I should tell you a bit more about my machine as well. I have an amd pc with win 7 x64 running os x Mountain Lion 10.8.3. It's an xfx radeon 6770 1gb and i have everything else working, usbs, lan, Audio etc. I have tried kext helper and kext drop and with and without repair permissions. PS i have managed to get vmware tools working so not sure if that's causing a problem.


Loads seem to have got this working but i can't. My biggest problem with this (if it is this that's the problem) is that all flash videos on safari and firefox come out black screen, on opera they work for a few seconds then the video stops altogether. I'm guessing its the card which is why im trying to fix it but i'm not even sure about that.
