This counts as a reference card, right?

The card that I got is on the left. I tried updating it to the Tahiti bios, but kept getting errors, and ATIFLASH in DOS said adapter not found.

It is a reference card, right?

So the card currently boots? If you were to error out while installing the bios, the card would not boot. You are probably on the locked bios, switch the little switch on the side of the card to get the flashable one.
