Problems with A1-500 and RadeonHD 6570 [Solved]

Post by Emu »

I have decided to upgrade my A1-500 hard drive to bigger capacity (500 GB to 1 TB) and all went fine. Having RadeonHD 4650 I bought 6570 from Amigakit hoping to increase graphics capabilities as well.
Unfortunaltely I cannot install this card. I can see U-boot screens, then OS starts loading and when it comes to the „Loading kernel” progress bar screen goes black and nothing happens. When I change back to RadeonHD 4650 card - everything works nicely, no problems at all.
I have latest RadeonHD drivers installed (0.55), in Devs: Monitors I have both „PCIGraphics” and „Radeon” icons. The card is Sapphire RadeonHD 6570 1 GB model bought directly from Amigakit.
Has someone any ideas what can be the problem with such setup?

Thank you,
Brgds

Where can I get that one? The latest I have comes from A-EON web site and it says its "RadeonHD.chip Driver Version 1.0 RC1 (0.55)".

Same here, I just logged into my A-Eon account and this clearly is the RadeonHD v0.55 driver. Where did get the v0.57 from?!?

It was preinstalled on my new X1000.
I will check the version available at my a-eon account later.

Do you see the boingball bootscreen? (seems you don't)
YES: click both mouse buttons and try load WB without startup-sequence.
NO: What type of cable do you use VGA/DVI/... to connect card<->monitor? maybe it only works with a VGA-VGA cable (or a DVI-DVI).

No, I don't see that boingball splash screen, the only thing I can see is U-boot screen. I'm using DVI - DVI connection. Surprisingly, old Radeon 4650 works well with this type of connection...

Try booting with your monitor turned off.
Turn the monitor back on after a few minutes .
If you have separate speakers you can hear if there is the boot jingle.
For some reason my HD 6570 gives the most problems with my Sam's .
The above method was the only way that I could get it to boot with my Sam440ep.
