You should normally only be flashing with newer versions of bios when it fixes a problem your card actually has !
And the ONLY bios that will not show any ID errors when flashing is the one that is currently on your card !
So when flashing with any different revision of bios, or maybe just a different manufacturers bios, it is usually necessary to use the nvflash "error override switches" as follows,
Flash the bios in DOS using nvflash.exe v5.25
(removes any protection)
nvflash -b ORIGBIOS.ROM
(saves original bios)
nvflash -4 -5 -6 BIOSNAME.ROM
(flash new bios file)
However because of DOS filename restrictions, "ORIGBIOS.ROM"
must have no more than 8 char's in first part of filename and no more than 3 char's in extender part, otherwise DOS will not recognise the command.
And note; the -4 -5 -6 command switches will force a flash regardless of any ID mismatches, so always just select to continue.
