Title: ATI/Nvidia Stock EFI ROMS List
Post by: Librarian580 on May 03, 2012, 01:25:21 AM
In case something goes wrong and you end up misflashing your stock Mac Pro card, here is a list of the ROM's with downloads that i'm putting together for people to use. I'm going to complete it over time as I bring the ROM's together.

These are stock Intel roms ONLY, not custom ones. Any help for getting the stock roms that I don't have here yet is greatly appreciated! Also, do let me know if anything seems to be wrong with any of these roms, like if I get the wrong one.

Some of these I have personally dumped from Mac cards, some I have found around the internet.
As far as I personally care, you can do whatever you want with these ROM's. They're Nvidia's, not mine.

-GT 120 (DVI, Mini Displayport, EFI64)
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/GT120Morig.rom
Can flash: None.

-8800GT EFI32
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/M88GT32.ROM
Can flash: Most 8800GT's and 8800GTS 512MB. (Soldering not required on EVGA's, some BFG and XFX)

-8800GT EFI64
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/mp8800gt.rom
Can flash: Most 8800GT's and 8800GTS 512MB. (Soldering not required on EVGA's, some BFG and XFX)

-7300GT EFI32
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/7300mac.rom
Can flash: Some 7300GT's and 7600GS (Soldering required)

-GTX 285 EFI64
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/evga285m.rom
Can flash: GTX 285's, GTX 260, GTX 280 Unconfirmed (Soldering required. Only works on the 1GB/896MB versions. From what i've seen, GTX 260's with the plate underneath and GTX 280's will have an issue with the fan spinning wildly)

-HD 4870 512MB
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/Mac4870.ROM
Can Flash: some Reference HD 4870 512MB's.

-X1900 XT
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/X1900MAC.ROM
Can Flash: X1900 XT and XTX 512MB. (Not GT, nor 256MB)

-HD 2600 XT 256MB
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/2600MAC.rom
Can flash: Some HD 2600 XT and Pro 256MB (Soldering required, must be GDDR3, not DDR2 or GDDR4.)

-Quadro 4800 Mac EFI64
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/FX4800M.ROM (Thanks to Rominator!)
Can flash: PC Quadro FX 4800? (Soldering required and isn't recommended. Has an issue with the Fan spinning, according to Synthetix)

-Quadro 4000 Mac EFI64
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/Q4000MAC.rom
Can flash: PC Quadro 4000? (Soldering required and not recommended. Someone please confirm this can flash IF you have the soldering confidence, I assume that it can flash since the PCB looks the same)

-Quadro 4500 Mac EFI32
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/FX4500EFI32.rom
Can flash: PC Quadro 4500 (Soldering required, unconfirmed.)

-Quadro FX 5600 EFI64
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/MCQ5600.ROM
Can flash: PC Quadro 5600 (No soldering required?)

-HD 3870 512MB
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4133784/OrigRom/3870Mac.ROM
Can flash: None? (Soldering technically required. The issue seems to be with a what a friend of mine says is an Inductor, which on the mac version, is labelled "R47", but on the PC Version is labelled "R10". That's the only physical difference I could see between the PC and Mac versions, besides the EEPROM. Can't find any info on this.)

-Apple HD 5770
(ROM Needed, searching...)
Can flash: NONE. Use one of the custom roms instead for PC 5770s. Please go to one of the applicable threads for info on flashing these.

-Apple HD 5870
(ROM Needed, searching...)
Can flash: NONE. Use one of the custom roms instead for PC 5870s. Please go to one of the applicable threads for flashing these.



Let me know if I missed any cards.

I'm not responsible if you try soldering or flashing, and something goes wrong. I am doing my best to ensure accuracy, but in case the wrong ROM slips through, please let me know, and I will correct it.

I might post up some Video tutorials for flashing some of these soon, if anyone wants me to.

The original Apple 5770 and 5870 roms are in the threads here, but there are checks that have to be removed or the cards don't work, so not much point attaching the originals here. Maybe link to the "how to make one" threads where Netkas hands out the  "fixed" EFIs he wrote that can be combined with other cards?

The Quadro 4500 ROM is at The Mac Elite.

The 3870 should be marked as "not doable".

The Mac 4870 works on most 512 Meg boards but only if they are reference design. I think XFX 512s need a special one but I am not sure.

One memory issue on flashing 7600GS card:
Have an Asus 7600GS DDR2 512MB card.
It really shows 512MB in GPU-Z but after flashed it with Mac 7300GT firmware,it shows 256MB in Mac.
How to make it show 512MB in mac ?

The mac firmware is for 256MB. I don't think it will work on a 512. on some nvidia cards it does work for cards with different memory, but I can't guarantee which it will, so it's safe to assume it won't work on this one.

Any particular requests for Video tutorials? I'm planning on doing one for the 8800's, but i'm considering doing ones for GTX 285 (solder basics, and then flashing), 4870, and maybe 6870. Do any of these sound good to anyone?

i for one think itd be a grandious contribution to the community.

Here's the 4800 Mac ROM.

I just want to point out that Mac and PC versions of this card have different display outputs so flashing a PC one may not give the expected results.

Awesome, added!
Synthetix posted before on flashing the PC 4800 as well. (Just saw that you posted the room there too. Whoops on my part!) Said it had a constantly spinning Fan, as well as some other issue with the POST at times I think. He didn't say anything about the Displayports, I think.

Guys, upon flashing a 8800gt I get ID mismatch message? Is it normal? do you recommend a forceflash or this information should not appear during this procedure?


Title: Re: ATI/Nvidia Stock EFI ROMS List
Post by: Rominator on June 06, 2015, 10:24:25 PM
you need to pay more attention

what is the exact message?

If the device id mismatches, usually bad

if subsystem id mismatches, usually not a problem if you know rom will work on card

I got Adapter PCI Device 0611, firmware PCI device 0602
2 warnings:
image PCI subsystem ID does not mach adapter PCI subsystem ID
Firmware image board ID does not match adapter board ID (9021 vs 9018)

Cards seem to be identicall visually

If thats not a big problem and its worth a try what is the command to force flash?

I've flashed about 5 evga 8800gt cards recently with a Mac Pro 1,1 on Yosemite. They all have the EFI32 bios now and work great in Mac Pro' 1,1 and 2,1.. But yesterday I tried to flashed one in a Mac Pro 5,1. I used the EFI64 bios because my friend wanted to use this card in his Mac Pro 3,1. But now the card is completely dead. It doesn't even show up in nvflash. Any idea's?


Title: Re: ATI/Nvidia Stock EFI ROMS List
Post by: Bunga-Bunga on June 23, 2015, 08:35:04 AM
Perhaps not enough room in the flashrom. You should try to flash the original rom, either with a second card (no nvidia, if possible) or blindflash under DOS with batchfile (works well in normal pc, no mac).

Pay attention before flashing that the rom is big enough. Most cards with reference-design (most ones have a green pcb) and 8800gts will work, but avoid all models with 640MB VRAM.


Title: Re: ATI/Nvidia Stock EFI ROMS List
Post by: HAL2001 on June 23, 2015, 08:48:56 AM
Thanks for the reply. Is blind flash possible if nvflash states there is no nvidia card in the computer?
Why can't I flash on a Mac? If I pull the osx drive, the Mac Pro wil boot directly into Windows.


Title: Re: ATI/Nvidia Stock EFI ROMS List
Post by: Bunga-Bunga on June 23, 2015, 09:19:17 AM
I had a similar case: I tried different versions of nvflash, only one worked. But i did it under DOS-environment, which is the safest way.

For Macs i use FreeDOS from cdrom. External volumes aren't recognized, so i used a DOS-partition on internal drive or IDE-HDD in the optical drive-bay (only MP 1.1 to 3.1!).

Took the time to investigate further today but neither in OSX or under DOS is my card visible. So NVFLASH says there nothing to flash, I think the card is broke now. Or is there another way to flash this card?

Hey,

i had a similar problem a few days ago, i had to connect 2 pins of the eeprom to get it going again. Connect CE# (Pin 1 - the pin with the dot) and Pin 4 (GND) on the cards eeprom while booting up. Your card should be found afterwards and should be flashable afterwards.

Take a look here, it says pin 4 and 5, but pin 1 and 4 are the right ones.

Wow thanks. Did you do this on a EVGA 8800gt? I guess this means I have to take of the cool plate? Was it hard to find the eeprom in the card?

There are 4 Mac 8800GT roms. For EFI32 there is a 602 and a 611 device id rom.

Same with EFI64. So, you need the one for device id 611.

Title: Re: ATI/Nvidia Stock EFI ROMS List
Post by: j-man on November 17, 2015, 05:03:19 PM
Maybe it's just a coincidence... but I was wondering why I've flashed a reference 5770 with my old MP 1,1 and I got a fully working card, with boot screen on both 1,1 and 5,1. Then I've flashed a similar card with the new Mac and it shows the boot screen on it, but not on the old 1,1...

EDIT: I was wrong... the boot screen is visible on the DVI port when the HDMI plug is not connected.

One thing I'm sure about is that the boot CD I used with MP1,1, copied from "Win95b_bootdisk.iso", doesn't work with 5,1: it freezes after the string "Device ID: BANANA". To boot DOS with MP5,1 I've got to use the FreeDOS CD.

Hi, J-man,
First sorry for my bad English.
I've seen you have some postings in this topic: "http://forum.netkas.org/index.php/topic,10827.0.html"
I known you were successful with your ASUS HD 5770 after flashing it, and mine also. Because I have the same ASUS vid card as yours and I used your edited rom from that topic. Thanks for it.
I think we both have the same problems with: screen booting (Only working on VGA port) & just DVI port working after boot.
I'll be so happy if you could share more info about your trying to make all the ports work.
I also created a topic at this url: "http://forum.netkas.org/index.php/topic,11491.0.html" in case you will be interested.

Thank you and wish to receive the replies soon
Have a nice day! ^^

HI Librarian,

I would  very much like a video tutorial or just a written tutorial on flashing nvidia cards to work on Macpro1,1 or Macpro2,1.  I would prefer the inexpensive cards.

Thanks,

Not sure I'm doing it right.

Seriously, you will need to choose  a card, do some googling, then ask questions that show you ahve put more than 15 seconds into the effort.

GTX680 is easiest one to flash for Macs.

4500 is in same family as 7300GT

So, no driver after 10.7.5 IIRC

very little reason to write an EFI64 EFI for it.

Blow $30 on an 8800GT and be amazed at the better card

Post by: NotTheFonz on January 19, 2017, 04:23:37 AM
Hia,

All my research so far into finding a EFI64 ROM for the Quadro FX4600 has come up bupkis. I'm only looking for it because I have a free (PC) QFX4600 in a free MacPro 1,1 that's running ElCapitain. Everything seems to work fine so far (compared to the original QFX1500 the MP came with), except for the boot screen. Not that it matters much, but I've come this far...  

So a silly question: can the 4600 be flashed with the 5600 ROM?

If the card gets bricked, I assume I can just re-flash it with the original (extracted) ROM, correct? I realize that a far simpler and more effective solution would be to get something like a (PC) GTX680 and flash that, but I'm still motivated to make this work on the cheap.  :P

Thanks in advance

You want the EFI64 version of 8800GT rom.

The tricky part is 8800GTs are hit or miss as to whether they have 64K eprom or 128K.

EVGA brand usually have 128K, other brands usually did not.

Yeah, I no longer remember how but it can happen.

I did a bunch of G80 and G92 EFI roms and seem to recall it was pretty easy. Don't remember if you have to decompress the EFI.

Good luck, but it can be done

The card seems to be a G86 chip, I tried to ask in win-raid forum, where they use gopupd, but since yesterday I didn't get any answer.
I understand that maybe I'm bothering you, but can't you help me a little bit at least telling me what software should and/or can I use to do the task?
Thanks in advance.

Many useful roms are buried in MR threads and here in the specific threads
WHat card are you looking for?
All the Nvidia EFI32 roms:
8800GT
7300GT
Quadro 4500 Mac
What does MR means?
Btw, can you answer to my request above?
Thanks.

Ok, so I managed to get the compressed mac efi32 gop extracted from the 8800gt efi32 rom, and I merged it to the original 8400GS rom, but now it's too large for the eeprom chip: should I change the chip unsoldering the old one and soldering a newer one with more space?

Using GOPupd, I tried to merge the EFI32 gop from the 8800gt, extracted with GOPupd itself, with the original bios of a Palit GTS250 1Gb, g92 based, but it don't work on the Mac Pro 1,1/2,1 as it doesn't show the bootscreen.
Maybe I did something wrong?
Tha card works perfectly, on El Capitan, and under GPU-Z (on windows) it shows the "UEFI" support check.
What did you use, Rominator, can you try to remember or find back your past works, please?
It's very important to me.
Thanks.

just correct device id in header of EFI to GTS250

Where this gets messy is that G92 uses soft straps to change dev id, so in all likelihood could make card appear as 8800GT, I'm even recalling now that soft strap tricks depended on whether card was closer to 0x0602 or 0x0611

Yopu have to understand, this is a bunch of stuff for a $25 card

Needs 128K chip as well

And then DCB tables and last rom indicator fix

good luck

Ok and what does it mean in basic terms: should I check or do something?

I know, I'm sorry to bother you about this, but I need to use what we already have :(

The GTS 250 already have a 128K chip, that's why I tried.
