@ the time i flashed and modded bios files for fx cards i used nvflash in this way
nvflash -f 5900xt.rom -u -p => that don't work????
=> first i have to enter nvflash -r??? then the line above this???
I not only know you but I also recently browsed a website in german which showed a 59xx bios mod procedure with your name against it.
I didn't look at it in any detail so I don't really have any comment for you other than if you are happy with it then that is all that matters.
And for all flashing activity with my FX5900nu card, I have never had any problems as stated in my last post of just sticking with the following simple procedure,
Flash the bios in DOS using nvflash.exe v4.41
(removes any protection)
nvflash -b ORIGBIOS.ROM
(saves original bios)
nvflash -u -p -f BIOSNAME.ROM
(flash new bios file)
Because of DOS filename restrictions, "ORIGBIOS.ROM"
must have max of 8 char's in first part of filename and max of 3 char's in extender part, otherwise DOS will not recognise the command.
And the command switches are supposed to come first, with the -f command being immediately before the filename of the bios.
Also as I previously posted, it is sometimes necessary to use the -j switch to force a flash on a card with a corrupt bios.
