Can't flash my new reference 7970 to the Tahiti bios....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Every time I try to run the tahiti bios exe it says this:

ATI Winflash MFC Application has stopped working. Some blue bars fill up and then that error comes up.

I am running the latest beta drivers (just got the MSI card today).

Any ideas on how to fix this?

EDIT: Just tried with the DOS utitlity and got this:



What am I doing wrong? mad.gif

Same problem, any fix?


edit.

I was able to flash bios using atflash3.99 and a bootable usb. Neither of the msi lightning bios worked for my card which is the msi r7970 oc. I was able to succesfully reflash my backup bios.

If any onw has any suggestions on a good bios to try I am all ears.
