6990 one core BIOS not flashable

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Ok, hit me with a heavy object please. I typed 1 wrong number and accidentally atiflash overwrote the slave BIOS on the 6990 with a slave BIOS from my second card - 5970.

Originally, the slave was listing as the 0 gpu core. After i screwed up, the master core is listing as the 0 core, and the slave isn't visible or flashable the regular way.

That's on the economy BIOS. As you know, this card has 2 BIOSes. If i switch to the power BIOS, both cores are visible, rock the house, and work flawlessly.

However, i would like to recover the slave in the economy BIOS to its original condition...

Has anyone of you been able to recover from an invisible 0 core before?

Thank you in advance for your time and suggestions.

Welcome to OCN. Not sure if anybody has that issue before. Have you ever flashed a video card bios before? I would assume that it's a no because you would have paid more attention to what you are doing. Search around on the AMD graphics section and see if you can find anything.
