I managed to brick my MSI r5770 Hawk last night so I thought .. what the hell .. try some of the 5770 roms . . I have on my Mac Pro 2,1 Dual Quad 3Ghz.

Here I must apologize to whomever made the ROM that worked ( perfectly ) on this US$49 card . .I have no idea which of the many 5770 ROMs I have worked but someone smarter than me can probably easily work out which via internal version numbers. In any case I am over the moon. Everything works !

I have full EFI though the initial boot "Apple" seems to be 800 x 600. The other EFI screens are larger too but I can live with that. I can also boot into Windows 7 and Mavericks 10.9.5.

I'm currently using it with a DVI to VGA adapter. DVI to HDMI cable also works but no EFI  -nice to know that EFI is there if I really need it.

The MSI r 5770 comes factory overclocked and has two incredibly quiet fans - I honestly can't hear them under normal loads.

I've been going nowhere trying to flash an ASUS HD 5870 which is huge by comparison and noisy at idle. I'm more than happy with the MSI card seeing that my previous card was an X1900XT.

My heartfelt thanks and gratitude to this ROM's creator. I have renamed it from "Juniper " to "JuniperMSI_R_5770EFI.rom" to avoid confusion. I'm not Terminal savvy (yet) so if anyone can track which version this is in the 5770/5870 thread I could then give credit where credit is due.
