    Hello friends,

    I need a bit of help or ideally, guidance.

    I have a PC GTX 560-448 card and cannot find any info in how to flash this to be Mac friendly.

    I know of macvidcards services, but I can't justify paying almost 100 for flashing an old card.
    Besides, learning something new is not bad either.:)

    Thanks!

    This is not a simple task.
    You will need to de-solder and re-solder a larger eeprom, from what i understand only certain ones work.

    Then theres the fact you have to merge an existing Mac EFI from a q4000 mac into the 560 rom and it its not a cut and paste job.

    theres a reason you pay 90us for it. Its not an hours work.

    Thanks for the answer.

    I honestly feel that is better to just have a hackintosh instead of this.

    Once configured, you can use everything that has a driver.
