Hi everyone,

I have a Voodoo 5500 PCI card for the PC. Is there any way to flash this card for use in a Mac? I've heard of people doing the Mac -> PC conversion, but not the other way around... any suggestions?

The first problem will be to get a bios for a Voodoo 5 for Mac.

BTW I have V5 5500 Mac but it's not here. I'll dump and post file later.

Can you stop the hurricane ?

Nope, 3dfx did something to the board so it could not be flashed to Mac.

Try finding it- I have on a 4500 with no luck at all.

It's not just one resistor but a few of them in a pattern.
