NewsSwapping PCI Option ROMs PinstaffTerrence Dorsey7-Apr-13 13:22 
Have you ever wondered how PCI cards are able to perform basic operations — such as accessing a disk, displaying graphics, or booting off the network — before their drivers have been loaded? Or why cards are platform specific, despite the fact that everyone is using standardized PCI interfaces? The answer actually lies on the card itself, inside a bit of addressable flash memory called the “Option ROM”, which contains executable code that’s located and run at boot time.... This leads me to my small Friday evening project in getting a PC version of the Radeon 7000 64MB working on a PCI Power Macintosh, for which no 64MB cards were released.
Hardware not compatible? Nothing a little soldering can't solve...
