Hi,

I was sold a 580 2048SP without knowing. However this is not supported by macOS so I can't hackintosh. I'd like to flash the 570 equivilant VBIOS but I don't know which one to use.

There are two versions with my version of the memory so I don't know which one to use.

The card is an MSI 580 8 GB OC version
The two bios are here the armour OC versions

VBIOS versions


GPU Z

Thanks

Yours doesnt specify OC,

Open gpu-z, click on arrow next to the uefi check box and attempt to upload your bios to the vga bios collection, you may receive a prompt that the file is already in the database with a link to the file, copy that link and paste it here. If it didnt say the file is slready in the database go ahead and upload it and copy the link and paste it here please.

I believe it's the armor OC version(has white shroud). Didn't realise there was multiple ones. Please let me know if blacking out anything that's required.

More GPU Z info with memory timings and type

Ok let me look

The image with the 2 power connectors on the right, look closely at your specific card and take a pic of that card edge from above, lets verify if you have a dual bios switch and a fan switch please.

Ok go above the power connectors not below them, look at the card back above those connectors.

Haha yeah they did.

ASRock B250 PRO 4
Intel i5 7500 iGPU HD630
8 GB DDR4
Boot the system using the HD 630 igpu, put the monitor on that first.

Download your bios file from here as a backup


Open gpu-z and verify it can detect the armor card using the hd 630 igp

@Turtle122 let us know you have met the above requirement

Once you have then we will take a risk under my discretion

Okay, I've had to go to BIOS and switch the graphics to onboard first then booted up with one monitor connected to the onboard HDMI. All monitors have been disconnected from the RX 580. GPU Z still shows the RX 580 in the drop down(bottom left). I've backed up the bios.

I have no drivers installed btw for the RX 580. Windows has automatically just installed Intel drivers.
Doesnt matter, we are going to be using a flash utility by AMD/ATI

This is the original bios for your card

Try this file first it closely resembles your current bios.

Do not flash yet

Let me find them

Use this tool to flash, open it and run it, find the file you downloaded below. Follow all prompts, reboot and verify the flash took, and then hook your monitor up to the card directly and verify it works.


Try this one first, it is closely related to your current bios.


These are others to try

For the first, second and last one it says subsystemIDs mismatch
Third one said Error Reading from ROM

EDIT:

Could it be due to a bios lock
