    hello! so in preperation for my new pc 5870 that should be going in my mac pro ive been reading and reading every flashing guide and how to i can, and have been downloading all the flashing tools i could need. i may have installed an update for a 5870 while i dont have that card yet, only my stock 2600. everything was working fine for a day untill i restarted randomly and i got THIS! can anyone shed some light as to what i can do? im a total dumbass. total effing dumbass i didnt even mean to install that file but didnt want to cancel halfway through.... this is my work computer tooo. so id like to NOT have to do a clean install :(:(:(:(:(

    thank you so much in advance :(

    PS, booting into safe mode shows the same thing,
    booting into windows works perfect

    You did not say on which OS X version you are, the best way is to go to Apple's site, download the 10.X.X combo update and run it, that should probably solve the problem without reinstalling.

    And, start up in safe mode, is this working?
    If so do as I said above.

    Edit: now I read once more, it won't help, you probably have to reflash the card to it's former state.
    It's not in the OS, it is in the card's firmware where the problem lies.

    I have an older macpro 1.1 with a very cheap nvidia card in it in another room.... Can I use that machine to change my cards firmware?
    The update pkg I used seemed like a normal
    Installer file, if it was the card... Would it still work under windows 7? And appologize for my lack of info! I have a macpro 3.1 running 10.6.8. 14gb ram and 4 hds. What would be my best course of action in your opinion?

    Edit: safemode does not allow it to boot. Also starting in verbose mode gives me a few lines about "volume header needs minor repair".... Then gives the panic after " please convert the following to launchd : /ect/mach_init.d/dashboardadvisoryd.plist

    Hm, volume header needs minor repair means your disk directory is also not 100% but this could be due to the mac crashing, you could repair a mac in Single user mode.
    /sbin/fsck -fy

    Do you have a firewire cable, if so you could connect both Macs and start up the affected machine in target disk mode and then repair the disk.

    This probably won't repair your issues, but give it a try.

    You say you have another macpro, you could try to put the card in there and look what it does there, preferably this card only and see if it also crashes, if it does drop in the MP 1.1 card so both of them are there, connect the display to the original MP 1.1 and boot this should work and then you probably need to flash the 2600 back to original state.

    so now that ive calmed down a little.....
    i have a macpro 1.1 upstairs with a gt7300 inside (working)
    and a macpro 3.1 with a 2600xt that will only work in windoze.

    can/should i....
    try and reflash my 2600 with normal firmware (i dont even know where to get that...nor what i installed :( ) in windows on my mac3.1 if so? what programs would i need and where could i find a fresh 2600 firmware?

    or could i try putting the 32bit 7300card into my 64bitefi mac alongside the 2600 and somehow rollback the driver there?

    i also have a snow leopard disk waiting on standby incase someone recommends something with that. should i try taking all my ram/harddrives out?

    thanks justperry, im doing the single user mode thing now. will report back
  8. macrumors 603


    BOLD Ah, it works in windows, this means the flash in the card is OK.

    Now, do this, insert the Snow Leopard in the MP 3.1, then open Disk Utility and repair the disk, does this work, is Disk Utility repairing the disk?

    If it repaired the disk try to boot again, if this does not work then do not reinstall.
    Download the 10.6.8 Combo Updater from Apple, connect both MPros with firewire cable, start the MPro 3,1 up in Target Disk Mode, then run the Combo updater and select the disk on thhe Macpro 3.1, this will redo the Update on the disk and will repair the kernel extensions on the MacPro 3.1.

    Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1

    There are other ways to do this but is complicated(extracting kernel Extensions from Updater with Pacifist).

    ok justperry.

    first, my superdrive is broken so i had to borrow that from the second mac pro.... at first in disk utility my mac HD was greyed out, and it said "disk utility cant repair this disk. back up as many of your files as possible, format this disk, and restore your backup files" but i was able to repair the actual drive (above machd) after a successfull repair "mac HD" nolonger was greyed out.

    restarted the computer and i still got the same panic. im downloading the combo update now and will try installing remotely from the working macpro. but its gonna take about an hour to finish downloading. i really hope this works :( thank you so much for your help justperry!

    Repair with Diskwarrior, I had an issue a couple of weeks after I helped someone by creating his situation on my mac, disk Utility could not repair the disk, Diskwarrior DID.

    Edit: If it is not repaired before you do the Updater the problem might still be there, repair FIRST.

    so disk warrior didnt work, i booted from my dvd, it got through the first repair, and when i went to click on permissions i got " unavailable, requires a full mac OSX installation". checked all files and folders also, and got many "things that could to be repaired" mostly audio plugins..... now im on the macpro 1.1 and have the other mac in target disk mode.....doing the update with my fingers crossed
  13. macrumors 603


    Hopefully it works.

    Can't repair Permissions is not always that bad, it's the system files that could possibly prevent the machine from booting, it won't do much on User files.

    well the update worked:eek::D my boot takes a little longer now, and i get a wierd blue screen for a few seconds that i didnt get before. but all is up and running well i believe for now. i uploaded the crash report that i got when i first rebooted if you can make sense of what happened. and i dug around and found the file at fault. it was called "atidriverpatch10.6.8" must have come from the netkas forums somewhere. thank you <3

    But, what are you doing on the hackintosh forums, probably a patch.

    BTW, I didn't look at any of your screenshots, to big for my internet connection.

    Yeah, it's in the report, Model: MacPro1,1,
