Conflicting NVIDIA BIOS Version when Flashing?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm currently running 2xSLI of BFG 275 OCX. The OCX is an out-of-the-box overclocked card.

I recently acquired a BFG 275 OC (underclocked version of the OCX) to run 3xSLI.

I wanted to simply flash the BIOS from the OCX to the OC but was unable to do so, because, the OC has a newer BIOS than the OCX.

The OC is running: 62.00.60.00.05
The OCX is running: 62.00.59.00.06

How can I flash the OCX BIOS to the OC? Or is this not possible?
Am I simply left to using the 62.00.60.00.05 BIOS and overclocking them to the Core, Shader, and Memory to match that of the OCX (62.00.59.00.06)?

HELLLLLLLLLLLLP.

That's what I'm doing. I'm Flashing through a DOS Bootable USB Stick and NVFLASH.

But when I run NVFLASH and choose the BIOS, it's saying that the BIOS versions aren't a match.

Ah

Then override the protection, add 4, 5 and 6 to the command line like so

-4 -5 -6 yourbios.rom

EDIT> You might have to run this first, -protectoff

I believe -help will bring up all the commands.

All of 4, 5, and 6?

So basically, I'm executing the NVFLASH.exe while in DOS by doing:

Quote:
nvflash GT200.rom
In the above text.... NVFLASH runs the NVFLASH.exe, the space + GT200.rom selects the ROM to flash.

What you're saying I need to do is to do
Quote:
nvflash -4 -5 -6 GT200.rom
Correct? Just like that?

nvflash -4 -5 -6 x yourbios.rom

x being the adapter you're flashing.

Do you have all the cards installed while flashing?

No, I took the BIOS off the 275 OCXs and unpopulated the rest of the PCI-E slots. In other words, I'm only running the OC while trying to flash it.

I'm a little confused. What do you mean "x being the adapter [I'm] flashing"?

If you had multiple cards installed you'd have to target each card, 0, 1, 2, etc

So..

I'll just need:

nvflash -4 -5 -6 GT200.rom
since I removed all other cards, right?
