5770 and 5870 in MacPro and rom

I used efi rom from new imac’s 5750 and original 5770 pc rom to create custom hybrid rom.

It works in osx, no injector used.

Since I used mobility ATI rom we have nothing from card on boot, but once osx booted – the card works.

Both dvi ports work, displayport works too, 3 displays doesnt work atm.

Once we have macpro’s 5770/5870 roms boot screen should work too. But for now you can already enjoy 5770 in your macpro.

It only works on 2008+ macpros, because efi is 64-bit now, not ebc anymore.

screenshots and the rom:

before flashing you also need to install driver.

Also, 5870 is working too in macpro.

    Hi the article describe that the 5770 also works in the mac 3.1 (early 2008) but the apple website say only for 2010 mac. Did anyone test the 5770 card on a early 2008 (800 Mhz Frontsidebus )mac ?

    Hi Netakas

    I have a sapphire 5870 OC: http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?leg=&psn=000101&pid=326

    It is installed in my 2008 (3,1) macpro and is working in Windows 7.

    I have attempted to flash the BIOS with XFX5870_1.rom using ATIWinflash 20111, however it gives me a “SubsystemIDs mismatch” error with a mysterious Continue button. Which flashing too should I be using?

    Hi Netkas,

    Are you going to dev 5650 mobility driver as well?

    Hi

    I’ve attempted to flash XFX5870_1.rom as per post 53, using the atiflash DOS utility.

    I’m receiving an error 0FL01 when trying to force the BIOS onto the card:

    The 5870 is the only card present in the machine.

    I have success with this card:

    http://www.pccomponentes.com/fotos/tarjetas_graficas/tarjetas_graficas_ati_pci_express/sapphire_radeon_hd_5770_1gb_gddr5.jpg

    On a Mac pro 4,1..Booted from lastest version of The Ultimate Boot CD ( 5.0.2) + Atiflash + Saphire_vanilla.rom

    This command: atiflash -p 0 -f Saphire_vanilla.rom

    Screen show only when os x booted completely.

    Performance: Not much like original GT120 OEM at the moment…may be better with Mac pro 5770 ROM + original 5770 pc rom to create custom hybrid rom.

    Thanx Netkas !!…

    SUCCESS

    XFX5870_1.rom flashed to SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X HD5870 1GB GDDR5 PCIE OC. Works in OS X after installing the Snow Leopard Graphics Update.

    ATIFlash 3.79 was using “Special Disk For Bios Flashing” from http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

    atiflash -fa -fm -fs -fp -p 0 xfx587~1.rom

    I was experiencing error 0FL01 when I used ATIFlash 3.75.

    Many, many thanks netakas.

    Thanks to Netkas ROM 5770, the Gigabyte card GV-R577UD-1GD HD5770, worked perfectly. I just would like to know how are you guys solving the problem with the cables. I upgraded from an ATI Radeon HD 4870 (Mac Version) which already had the power cables. I’d like to buy a new set of cables to use the 4870 in another macpro. Can somebody tell me where can I find them?

    Test DVI ports

    Greetings and Netkas, you are the BEST!!!!

    Successfully flashed a Sapphire 5870 Vapor-X.

    The main difficulty was getting to a DOS prompt. In the end, I used the standard FreeDOS ISO file and burned it to a CD. I initially wanted to use a USB stick, but no matter what I tried, the Mac would not see it as a boot device.

    When launching FreeDOS, select 1 to run FreeDOS, then 1 again to “install”. Select keyboard and then select LiveCD option.

    Once at the command prompt, you can just plug a USB stick (it’ll mount in A:) with atiflash and the ROM file and get flashing.

    Thanks Netkas and others and good luck on getting the EFI screen loading!

    Hello? Nekas!

    I is a 2008 Early Mac Pro users!

    First of all, thank you for giving me a great ROM created.

    XFX Radeon HD 5770 1GB Triple X graphics card installation was successful.

    But also the boot logo screen (the gray Apple mark) does not appear.

    To solve this problem, I tried hard, but there was no way to investigate the Internet.

    Now the key issue of the 5770 saphire vanilla design card rom for the imac m5770 rom found out that it was built on.

    Since that time I Radeon HD 5770 for Mac Pro start looking for the rom and the last one was achieved from netizens.

    This is my graphics card is inserted in Rom file will not boot. Are scared of recognition.

    Rom file and give it to Nekas Dual link DVI even see the boot screen to create a new Rom File help please?

    Or until now how can I watch the boot screen?

    I live in South Korea because of poor English language skills do not.

    I hope you can understand. ^ ^

    Thank you.
