But the thing is supposed to be: pci1002,4a50 as 4A50 was the origonal DID according to atiflash from DOS.
The FCode is definitly in there, but just no video. BIOS (PC) no longer boots with the card, so I can't reflash it from DOS. I hexxed the mac rom afterwards (as soon as I saw my mistake) so the DID is correct (on 3 and the other line), but how to flash this? Graphiccelerator 1.3.4 has the Multiflasher, but even in safemode it won't flash (via VNC). The system hosting the x800xt is my G5 DP 2.0Ghz, with the molex plugged in as well, to provide the power. (so that's not the issue)
When I load the ROM into the Flasher (using Graphiccelerator) and execute the flasher, it asks for confirmation, but gives an error when I accept.
Is there a different flasher out there?
Something different: I have a dead 9800 PRO with a nice 128kb rom on it (same smd package and pins), which in theory would allow me to move it over to the x800xt and use a full mac rom, right? Would that give me DVI as well? The GPU on the x800xt board is a R420, which is quite close to the firegl series that support DVI after flash.
I got a similar problem. What your looking for is the no-confirmation flasher aquamac talks about in his posts. He even says it's linked on this forum, so I'm currently searching for it. If I find it I'll make sure to give you a heads up.
