First, someone already posted this question and didn't get a response way back and I have recently tried to get some help... to no avail. Maybe people don't really check that thread out to much so i'll see if this is more active.

I followed the steps EXACTLY, multiple times as in the video and I get the same result as this guy:

this is what i got after i did the VFlash, just to let you know. did i do it right? or is something wrong?


I get this exact problem except mine has an added line of:

Programmed: 0 RomSize: 20000

or something like that.

Does anyone have any clue why it is giving me this error and how I can fix it?

I've tried google and searched through forums and I can find some vague answers for other flashing programs on different cards, but not this one.


Edit: I've already flashed my bios to 213 or whatever was the newest.

Finally found out how to get past that error, for anyone else having it.

Before you start the flash you have to unlock the rom

atiflash -unlockrom 0 (or w/e device it is)
vflash


and it worked.
