When UEFI is enabled in the BIOS of the motherboard, there is an error:
"The vga card is not supported by UEFI driver".
Need modded the VBIOS for graphic card xfx radeon HD 6970 reference.
I have made a backup of the vBios by means of GPU-Z.
Here the person liamstears says that it is necessary to add some code and to slightly modify lines at the beginning of the block.
liamstears wasn't online nearly 2 years. )

I do not see the UEFI code.
the first post in that other thread, seems to have the exact thing you looking for, doesnt it? its a process on how to modify the existing bios, to get the compatibility.

Did the HD69xx support uefi? I thought that came later....but i could be cery wrong too, my memory isnt good.


it looks like this thread on a different site may have the answer your in search of OP

http://www.overclock.net/forum/67-amd-ati/1474306-radeon-6000-series-uefi-bios-thread-4.html
My XFX one did, although going though all the crap for it ( reinstalling the OS ) it ended up being totally a waste of time, and must be some thing else i reverted back because i just remember why lol.

I do know after i got it to work in UEFI i changed back pretty soon after.

I believe there were only a few that supported it.

You about gigabyte 6970?

yes, with xfx 6970.
Yep, seemed like a bunch of people were trying to flash their cards because of it. which was the reason i tried it but it aint worth it :p.


EDIT: Some reason i remember some thing about the HDD's GPT or some thing, as back then i was using about 10 HDD's in raid.

i knew that at the start when i was reading the OP, but :rolleyes:. 90% of enthusiasts endevours are. The info for the process OP is seeking IS in that thread i linked,but he is going to need to do the work, noone is going to take his .rom and take the time, then re-upload it (even if someone was willing, that is how GPU's get Bricked).

Whats the point of the process? meaning what isgained from it?

I found it pointless and no advantages doing so at all, and reading part of that thread makes me think i did change back due to GPT.

Me need modded the VBIOS for graphic card xfx radeon HD 6970 reference for UEFI.

Need add UEFI code for graphics card xfx radeon 6970, to work with UEFI BIOS.
Do you understand me?
Me need just take a piece of code from gigabyte 6970 and put it in your vBIOS xfx 6970?
This code from gigabyte 6970 is compatible with my card xfx 6970?

He does not respond.
Look for the Mining Bios Repository using the magnifying glass and reply to one of his responses.

Unfortunately, we dont have an UEFI bios files for legacy products, but some reference cards would technically work with modified UEFI bios files that came out later.

There are no official releases from XFX and modifying the bios would void your warranty, so proceed with extreme caution.
