    We're all waiting for this here :)

    Also post some photos. So we can see what's new in this machine.

    yeah, over at netkas' forum they've discussed how well the apple 5870 rom works for flashing.

    aaaand... it doesn't. :rolleyes:

    so they've reverted to the 5770 efi rom from the imac, and simply made some changes to get it working on a 5870, albeit with no 1,1 or 2,1 support... yet.

    rom works fine, but it's the PC roms that have too little space to fit the EFI

    ROM works fine... in the Apple card. No success in PC cards yet, even for those that have the necessary space. I hope Netkas et al. will manage this, or else we won't be able to flash cards for 1.1 Mac Pros. :(

    Glad I'm holding out for the Apple card (not that Cindori et al don't do impressive work.)
