Title: Why is Apple's EFI graphics incompatible with Windows in UEFI?
Post by: jhohisel on December 24, 2014, 07:39:03 PM
After fighting with Windows trying to get UEFI on my MacPro5,1, I am giving up and going back to BIOS. It installed fine, but as soon as the graphics driver is loaded I get no image? I have graphics until the login window, then I get a black screen (this is with both my Apple 8800GT and my Apple GT 120). If I try a non-flashed card (EVGA GT 520) I have no graphics until I get to the login screen. I noticed the official Sapphire 7950 for Mac has a switch on it that switches between CSM/Apple EFI and a UEFI compliant firmware. This must have something to do with it. Curios if anybody knows why this is.

are you sure it's just graphics getting missed and not complete system lockdown ?
