Firmware Update Fixes Intel X1900 Startup?
9:03 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story
According to user reports at Accelerate your Mac, the latest firmware update fixed a blank screen on certain monitors when using the ATI Radeon X1900 video card.
"Mike, I can confirm that the Mac Pro EFI firmware update 1.1 fixes the problem with no video during Windows XP boot with the ATI X1900. The low res XP splash screen now appears during boot.Please follow the links below to learn more information.
However, the Parallels issue with VT-x - requiring sleep to enable it - has not been fixed on my computer. This is with Parallels Desktop build 1970.
(I mentioned to him I was leery of that first report based on past history, but that reader said he had restarted (even shut down/cold restart) and said it was still 'fixed'. This reader then replied back:)
I have just tested again for the Parallels issue. Shut down and restarted to find that I no longer get the VT-x put the computer to sleep message. So, the first time I rebooted after the EFI update (after a shut down) I had to put the computer to sleep to enable VT- x. Now, it no longer requires sleep to enable VT-x after a cold restart. It would appear that the problem is fixed. Weird.
