I have no idea, but for troubleshooting purposes I would check each card individually by booting up with just one card in the Mac Pro. If that works, then try booting up with just the other card. This will ensure both of the cards are okay by themselves with Windows.

i can't pass the efi screen it will freeze when i selected the bootcamp drive or dvd install.

UPDATE:

just flashed back 1 card to PC BIOS and now both working and boot to bootcamp.

anybody is running 2 mac edition (flashed is the same) in windows?

this is so sad 1 pc version won't run full speed pci-express with efi rom would be great

UPDATE 2

just flashed back with mac rom again.

clean installation Windows 7 won't install correctly the drivers when 1 is mac edition and 1 is pc edition.

for now i can't use bootcamp, i prefer 2 Card running equal as original mac and 0 problems with osx i will wait some solution.

You still haven't answered the question.

And in my experience, problems like this frequently occur when Windows sends the display to a port on the card you AREN'T connected to.

So if you get grey boot screen on bottom 680 but it hangs there before going to Windows, try the other card to connect display to.

Also, how are you powering the 680s?

Ideally you get Windows all set up the way you like it with 1 card, then add the 2nd.

Ok guys, I Found a solution insert a DVD Windows 8.1 Update 1 Installation reboot and press option key and select EFI Boot (DVD Installation) it will pass and image come to display

now you need play good with GPT partion in OSX with Disk Utility not MBR to install Windows with EFI Native.

I'm testing now Windows SLI is Activated with DifferentSLI Auto v1.1

basically you need to do a EFI native installation not using bootcamp

I assume the issue with BOOTCAMP boot is that each GPU has EFI and you know it uses Legacy BIOS Boot.

I will post my progress...


Sorry for my english again.
