You need an USB drive for this.


http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197

1) Use the settings "FAT" and "Create a DOS startup disk". Extract this ZIP file and point the "using system files" location to it.

2) Copy the newest nvflash and your BIOS on the drive, then reboot with the USB stick plugged in. When rebooting, go into your bios and make sure that it tries your USB HDD before your normal HDD (Should be under boot priority).

3) When you get to DOS, run "nvflash -b oldbios.bin" (without the "" of course) to save your old BIOS just in case you might need it later.

4) Now run "nvflash -f newbios.bin". Replace "newbios.bin" with the filename of your BIOS file.

Reboot and you are done.


Did that to v-mod my 6800GS.


Good luck!
