[Tutorial] ATIWinFlash - How to flash the BIOS of your ATI Cards - Page 18

post #171 of 216
Each time I tried that, the system would freeze and I'd have to re-boot. A while back I borked the "Position 1" Bios flash so I slipped it back to Position 2. It's not like I have an emergency but I would feel a lot better with Pos. 1 back up and working.

I have an intel i7 2600K, z77 Asrock xtreme 4, and a Windows 7 64bit O/S. I can boot to the "on-board" graphics if need be, maybe there's a way to flash the 7970 Pos. 1 bios from there?
Thanks,
Rich
PS; the freeze up may be a coincidence, but if someone can confirm that this is the way to install the bios in that Position 1 option, then I'll try again as soon as I can, I just want to make sure I'm following the right path.

What if you have a dual GPU card, like an R9 295x2. Would the 0 & 1 still apply if the are both on the same physical Pcie slot (since it's one card)?

Yes. I flashed the bios on my 295x2 and it had that. I also had to flash two bioses, a master and slave.

Joeh4384: Would you mind telling me exactly what your process was? I want to make the card UEFI boot compatible with this bios posted by CrisInuyasha in the R9 295x2 Owners Club forum. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20405147/sapphire_r9_295x2_uefi.zip

As it stands now, I just feel like the risk/reward balance isn't there as I run the risk of bricking my card for a 10 second improvement on each boot. If I could find someone who had done it before and could walk me through their steps, specific to the R9 295x2 as I have found single-GPU guides, I'd feel a lot more comfortable.

How come you flashed your BIOS?

Thanks

I flashed it to the Sapphire OC version. It really didn't do much but give it a slight boost to 1030/1300 at stock plus I believe TriX allows extra volts which I haven't touched. I didn't use ATI-Winflash though, I downloaded the dos based version and used a USB drive to create a bootable disk following the instructions in the guide. Also, the 295x2 does have a Bios switch, so you do have a backup in case something disastrous happens.

Thanks, I'll look into that guide.

Actually, despite buying a Sapphire R9 295x2, there is not a switch on the PCB side of the card like it advertises - so I don't think I have any backup.

Hello

I need help with my system atm. So I flashed BIOS compatible to XFX HD7850 2GB (I have the Double Dissipation) I flashed the older bios as I understood that it might have bigger voltage table. Well I flashed it and then I encountered problem with atikmdag.sys. I have been playing around with it atm. I reflashed my backup bios and reinstalled Windows 10 from new cleaned partition.

Whenever I try to install latest stable drivers (The only one I've tried yet) it crashes either on the "Installing catalyst center" or "Installing AMD Display Driver" I tried going to the InstallManager.cfg and change the WorkaroundInstall to "True" but neither did this help. And I'm on point where I can run windows without drivers normally. So when I try to install GPU drivers the computer blue screens to atikmdag.sys and making a new file from atikmdag.sy_ doesn't help.

Cheers!


I got it working. So apparently I flashed a BIOS that wasn't compatible after all and the bios backup I made from my original bios came out as ver. 16 as the real one is 22 and that's why I never got it working and I found out I was flashing the wrong bios on Win98 DOS. Flashed the 22 and works fine now smile.gif

Can anyone mod my BIOS for a R9 280X Royal Qeen so that i can use more votage and maybe give me some higher clocks for the GPU and memory?
Thanks in advance :-) OriginalBIOS.zip 98k .zip file
