i really wanted quartz and all the other goodies..so,

I ended up getting an X1300 256 PCI CARD (not pci e)

Using this with TOH RC2 of leopard install.

 

The card detects

 

Type: Display

Bus: PCIe

PCIe Lane Width: x1

Vendor: ATI (0x1002)

Device ID: 0x7146

Revision ID: 0x0000

Kernel Extension Info: No Kext Loaded

Display Connector:

 

But that's all, no other info is displayed, no kexts or display info.

It is working and outputting video though.

 

I followed this guide for x1650 to hexedit one of the files where you take you replace certain code with 4671 and 7146. Still nothing.

 

 

I am thinking maybe the original drivers only support PCI Express and not regular PCI?

 

is there a fix for this?

 

I'm pretty much a total newb, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ended up turning off built in completely, I don't know what I did, but was having "please restart this computer" issues, and ati kext conflicts.

I also noticed that at boot it only detects the ATI as 16mb not 256mb ;) ?

 

Update:

 

After reinstall with on board disabled, and boot -v i get tons of display specific matching failed. And it boots to grey screen apple logo, then goes to next screen with mouse cursor and hangs.

 

What could be the issue?
