Do not flash a bios unless your system is 100% stable if not you can brick your board.

No don't flash, don't make any more changes.

Put a card in, boot to windows. Run whichever driver you have in there, say 11.7's setup.exe. Choose to uninstall the driver instead of install. Then refer to this post. Put in your second card, and a crossfire bridge.

Lemme know if you get to a boot up point with a black screen. Btw, it's not locked up, the system is live. All you need to do is push the power button once, let it shutdown and then reboot. Got to go do some dishes.

After you uninstall all the drivers, 1st from the setup.exe of the driver, then after the control panel app, choose remove all. You then go to the registry delete that key. After all this, shutdown, install your 2nd card, hook up the cfx bridge. Reboot. **At this point you will be on a clean slate drivers wise. Windows will install the standard vga driver. You may get the black screens here, just do as I wrote above. After reboot, confirm that you see 2 standard vga cards in device manager. If yes, hit the setup.exe and install the driver, reboot, install the CAP, reboot. All done.

If you don't see the 2nd vga card in device manager, then Houston, we have a problem.

*If windows installed a radeon XXX driver, you need to uninstall that driver from device manager and choose to delete it as well. Then ya need to delete the registry key again and re-do the reboot process.
