    HD2900 to mod w/ XP64 drivers walk through

    I got it to work. I edited post with correct steps added. Successfully modded my HD2900XT card for XP64.

    I used this this guide for (see steps 1-12 below):
    http://ocmania.com/index.php?showtopic=45&pid=58&st=0&

    1- Install riva tuner V2.09

    2- Intalled to AMD directory 8.453.1 drivers for Windows XP x64
    Link to drivers:
    http://www.solidworks.com/downloads/videocarddriver/ati/firegl_8_453_1_xp64_063074.exe

    3- in 53846.inf ("erase every PCI VEN ID u may find")
    replace with device ID, this is now what is in my CA_53846.inf [ATI.Mfg.NTamd64] section

    "ATI FireGL V8600" = ati2mtag_R600GL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9400
    "ATI FireGL V8650" = ati2mtag_R600GL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9400
    ;


    4- Copy ati2mtag.sy_ at C:\AMD\Driver\XP_INF\B_56046\ to desktop

    5- Create patch.rts from Shocko's x64 script.

    Per Shocko's Post


    6- change device ID in the line starting with "dst" lower section of script that corresponds to the card at the top of script.

    Dst6_6 = 66 c7 44 24 32 00 94 0F B7 54 24 32 90 90 90 90 90 90 90
    In the script above it is allready there it seems.. this took me a while to understand heh..

    7- Open patch.rts with RT and select force AMD FS V8600 or 8650
    8- Click next select ati2mag.sy_ from desktop and execute patch
    9- run cmd, cd desktop, type makecab ati2mtag.sys
    10- copy back ati2mtag.sys and atimtag.sy_ to \AMD\Driver\XP_INF\B_56046
    11- uninstall ATI driver in add remove programs. (none since fresh install)
    12- restart PC and device manager point video card to C:\AMD\Driver\XP_INF

    Thats it.

    @@@@@@@@@@ got it @@@@@@@@

    After reading posts till nearly blind installing the drivers mabye 50 times finally got it!!!!!!

    Here was mistake:
    I was using the wrong drivers since that was in an older 64 mod post I read, needed the 8.453.1 drivers.

    thank you Shocko and all those that made this mod possible!
