but no radeon module loaded. Seems it used vesa by default. There is no s/bin/v86d.

What driver was it using?
Only the vesa driver works on mine. The nvidia or nouveau drivers will not work.
The card seems to be detected as a Radeon which obviously it's not.

# hwinfo |grep -i gfx
Gfx adapter : monochrome
ef2c0 ff 4a 32 47 31 20 2d 20 47 46 58 20 56 49 44 00 ".J2G1 - GFX VID."
str1: "J2G1 - GFX VID"
Internal Designator: "J2G1 - GFX VID"
Model: "ATI RD890 PCI to PCI bridge (external gfx0 port B)"
Device: pci 0x5a14 "RD890 PCI to PCI bridge (external gfx0 port B)"
