You said in the tutorial not to flash with windows, what exactly does that mean? Can anyone find a good tutorial on flashing. There doesn't seem to be many out there? Do you flash in DOS on a windows computer or Mac?

Install the card in a Windows PC, download GPU-Z and post a screenshot of it.

First step is to dump the BIOS from Windows. Then hex edit from Mac OS, and last flash. Watch the video, you're doing it wrong.
