Why not register now to gain full access.

Okay, so doing that just brings me to the black screen again with the spinning mouse.

Using a different setting, I managed to get it to at least correctly detect the name of my video card but there is still no acceleration and the VRAM is incorrectly detected as 7mb still. I've tried almost everything from inputting patched connectors hex to different framebuffers to injecting both nvidia AND ATI (even though I don't have an nvidia card lol) and nothing seems to work.

I also tried every Realtek 8168 kext out there and still nothing in that regard either.

You're probably just as confused as I am right now. If you know of any specific guide to try more complicated fixes, point me to it and I'll give it a try.

It seems that from reading around, 290s either just work or just don't at all with OS X and maybe I'm on the wrong end of that spectrum.

Yeah they are a pain to enable apparently. The X versions seems to work better but not sure if the VBIOS is compatible with the card. I wouldn't recommend flashing it anyway. Have you tried the Load and Patch VBIOS options from Clover Configurator?

Yeah it's not a reference card so I can't use a 290X BIOS. I'm actually using a slightly modified BIOS on it to lower frequencies for stability.

As for your question about the Clover Configurator VBIOS Patching, no I haven't tried that.

Try those settings in Clover and see if it works.
