Use like a nvidia 9800 gt or other nvidia

 

Let's re-ignite this party! I have a Sapphire AMD R9 280X (Dual X) 3GB that wants to play. MaldOn, I went back and installed your first clover folder in my HDD's EFI partition. This is how far I got (photo). Any ideas?

 

This card has a switch to use either legacy boot or uefi boot. Can't get to BIOS if it is switched to legacy. Only when switched to uefi boot will I be able to see the BIOS. My Intel BIOS can enable UEFI BOOT , but it doesn't matter whether uefi is enabled or disabled in the BIOS, I still must have the switch (on the card) set to uefi to get the BIOS.

 

 

Thanks in advance!!

Sacre Bleu!! The Sapphire AMD R9 280X (Dual X) 3GB works with the C2Q q8200 OOB!! Sadness and grief! I've been dealt the very worst card ... no doubt about it ...

 

Seriously, how does Clover "know" to spoof the CPUID of the C2Q to a Xeon Quad core? Would it be possible to spoof my Xeon 5460* to a C2Q so Clover can then spoof it back to a Xeon? Sort of a spoof of a spoof?

 

 

Remember that the X5460 was actually **in** a Mac Pro https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/mac-pro-cpu-compatibility-list.1954766/

 

The other option is to overclock the {censored} out of the C2Q. CPU Boss says I can Overclock to 3.5 with water cooling-which I have!!

 

And the other option is just to nuke this mobo from space-it's the only way to be sure!!!

Booted with usb working. I think I'll make a clean install now on ssd (I worked on hdd and it's so slow) with your latest updates post install. 

ps2 keyboard doesn't work. 

Hey, I'm back with my 775 hack and Capo. I have just connected sound and it is present but cracked, staggering (right word?) Like low signal on cell phone. I haven't check that before.
