    Unfortunately, lost second monitor after install on Sapphire 4890.
    Says “VGA Monitor” (connected via DVI, no dongle) – monitor just plays dead.

    Anyone have any ideas? – Worked perfectly on 10.7.1 with patch

    2 Hanif try removing ATY_Init and use GraphicsEnabler=yes instead! worked for my GTX580 ^__~

    @Stanly.ok I tried it and i get Kernel Panic. I use npci=0x2000 as bootflag else i can’t boot into the OS. Has it got to anything with kernel panic i.e GraphicsEnabler=Yes and npci=0x2000 has some dependencies? I have GTX480 and i don’t think i have to use GraphicsEnabler=Yes.

    Я Вас приветствую господин Неткас.Хотелось бы поинтересоваться,как думает можно ли релиз Леопарда в снегу (барса)из виртуалки перевести на хард.Я на виртуалке поставил Леопарда так он ничего пашет и показывает бенчмарк 3800,насколько я знаю это неплохой показатель для Леопарда установленного в виртуалке.Я опробовал и Льва на виртуалке,но он не так качественно работал как Леопард,видимо сказывается и новизна релиза Льва.Хотелось бы поинтересоваться,как заставить полноценно работать под Леопардом видео карту NVidea GFORSE 9400GT.Заранее Вам глубоко благодарен.

    Thank you, Netkas. My 4870 X2 is working well with 10.7.2 just as it has with previous releases using your patches. I really appreciate the pains you take to help the OSX86 community.

    Fantastic Thank you for this information. Thank you thank you!

    Anyone else having gfx glitches on 10.7.2?

    While dragging files over the Desktop suddenly all icons seem to move and/or turn white, it happens really fast so I can’t really describe it, but happens almost every time I drag a file.

    has anyone experienced any problems with ati radeon 4850 512mb, I use aty_init kext along with the qe ci patch, which gives me all my displays, but removes my ability to my computer to sleep, when i put my computer into sleep, and then wake it up, I then get a garbled image, i can move the mouse, but thats about it. if i remove aty_init, i can put my pc into sleep, but i only have one display, (with a 2nd vga displaying in monitor preferences, but does not actually work) and no steam! has anyone else had any similar experiences?

    The link is broken. Crud.. just in the middle of reinstalling everything.. Did some googling to find a mirror but everything points back to and Groths/Cindori never updated Zues to 10.7.2. Mind reuploading? Thanks!

    What about XFX ATI 4870 1gb, Vendor ID 0x9440 ? in 10.7.1 your patch didn’t enable quartz driver 🙁

    I used this to install my 4890 however it doesn’t recognise my HDMI port. I ordered a Display port adapter would that allow me to use multiple monitors?

    QE/CI patch for 48×0 cards for 10.7.2 work fine with my 4890 HD.

    but since the use of patch LION, some bugs with some games.

    -> Broderlands (App Store), don’t work, just see the config windows, after it crash.
    -> Let’s Golf 3 (App Store), don’t work, it crash.
    -> Starcraft 2 work only on 1680×1050, 1920×1080 sparkles.
    -> SystemCheck_frFR (blizzard) don’t work, crash after windows.

    All this applications work fine on Snow Leopard (10.6.6 + patch netkas) with same card / monitor. (SC2 work in 1920×1080 in this)
    All this applications work fine on Lion without patch (on my old 8800 GT)

    My config : Mac Pro (2008 happertown) 8 Go, 2 monitors : 20″ with 8800 GT, 24″ with 4890 HD.
