Excellent. Smiley
And just in time. A macbidouille member is trying to get a 5770 working on a Rev 1.1 Mac Pro. He didn't know the current method wouldn't work for his Mac. We'll see if the EBC ROM works.

On my Sapphire Vanilla 5770, the Mac 1,1 thinks the card is working but displays remain blank.

DVI connections are not detected.

By using the Dual Link adapter to the Display Port, it thinks it IS connected, but still nothing.

Trying to find my HDMI adapter.

Attaching a finished EBC 5770 ROM and the IOReg report

good luck to all

EDIT: ioreg too big...emailing directly to the master

Hey, thats great news.
My gfx-card in my MacPro1,1 is broken and I need a new one.
Let's say I buy a new 5770 in a pc-store and the card is compatible with the newest flash from you guys - will I be able to use the gfx-card (see anything on my monitor) during the installation of OSX or does it need a running system with the correct drivers installed?

Kind regards

You need 10.6.4 with the graphics update. I don't think that installation disks have this version, except for 2010 Mac Pros.

I have just bought a new gfx-card (XFX 5770 - HD-577A-ZNFA) for my MacPro1,1. After flashing the card with the m57702.ROM, I booted the machine with the SnowLeopard install disc. When I turned on the machine the grey boot-up screen with the Apple-logo (EFI ?) showed up.

It looks like it works! Currently the machine is running the SL-install - will report back when installation is finished.

Edit: It is only working when using a DVI -> VGA adapter. No screen-output when using DVI only.

That's good. So you have EFI boot screen on this one. That works for some 5770s, but not for any 5870 that I know of.

Plus, it shows that you can use the card without drivers. I thought so. Only Nvidia cards cause a panic if they don't find proper drivers (which is a shame BTW).
You're lucky, because if you had a card that didn't show video during boot (and most of them don't), it wouldn't have output any video with the install disc that lack proper drivers.

I just tried the rom posted by Rominator on my HD5770 Vapor-X in my MacPro 1.1
The card is now recognized by os X but no output (both DVI and hdmi)

I don't have the SL graphic update installed cause i had a KP with it (5770 original rom)

What do you suggest?

Edit: well i just installed the graphic update and the 5770 is working properly! How cool is that?!!

Thank you for your work =)

So, do both DVI ports and HDMI work now? Do you know the product code of your card? Do you also see the boot screen?
