extract the nvflash files to C:\
save the BIOS file to C:\
open elevated cmd window (hit start button, type "cmd", right click cmd icon, run as administrator)
change directory to C:\ (type " cd C:\ " )
OPTIONAL: type " nvflash --protectoff " then hit enter (turns off any error msg that may result from software write protection)
BACKUP ORIGINAL BIOS: Type " nvflash -b backup.rom " and a copy of your bios will be saved to the nvflash directory
type " nvflash -4 -5 -6 680L_UnlockedBIOS.rom "
wait for it to finish
OPTIONAL: reinstall drivers
I think the main difference here is that there is no need for a bootable usb and so on. Basically it is done from cmd whilst in windows.
Would this be possible to do with the 780 TI bios? Or is it really not recommended flashing from windows?
Kinda lost here
It's so easy from WIndows
1. Put "Name of Bios".rom and Nvflash files in one folder (that I usually just create to the desktop)
2. Shift right-click inside the folder to open the cmd prompt window.
3. First type"Nvflash --protectoff" (without quotations)
4. Next type "Nvflash -4 -5 -6 "Name of Bios".rom (no quotations)
5. Type "Y" for "Yes" the rest of the way when asked to override the previous bios (again, no quotations)
6. Restart your computer after it notifies you it was successful. Finished!Edited by h2spartan - 6/8/13 at 6:01am
