    Shows up as HD 5000, how would I go about fixing this? I'm not OS X savvy and know very little with terminal.

    Explain as if you were talking to a child, thanks!

    Needs to be flashed with a Mac EFI rom.

    Well beyond child level.

    It's mostely an cosmetic issue, if you don't have any other problems with that card (and don't need a bootscreen) leave it that way. Otherwise, look for flashing tutorial at netkas.org.

    Thanks, though i'm capable of flashing, just unfamiliar with OSX.

    Good to know! It's only a temp card so I won't bother, thanks!
