The bios aren't for the efi that apple uses for their macs, it'll work under a windows environment in a Mac Pro, but that's it. You can flash some cards, but it's picky on what card you use.

If you want this in your mac make sure you buy a tube of lube first.

First and only warning. We aren't starting a flame fest here.

Besides, this isn't apple pricing it either.
