    Hi all,

    I know, there are some threads about SATA cards for the G5 here, but the answers were not really clear for me.

    I'm talking about the cards with the ASM1061 chip.
    Do I need any drivers for them and if yes, where to download them?
    Do I need to modify the firmware? Where to get the Mac firmware?

    I've found a cheap card on Amazon Germany (a similiar one was shown in another thread here):

    I have a DualCore G5/ 2GHz, PCI-Express, 10.5

    THX,
    Yassi

    That card is for a Windows machine and finding drivers for a Mac would be extremely hard, due to that card being 3rd party. Some of the only ones out there are Sonnet cards which are close to 100$
