Should I say yes to this? I feel like saying yes to this would be very bad for some reason, but I'm not sure why.

Thoughts? Am I dead in the water?
Pretty sure that's what happens if you don't do the --eraseeeprom prior to trying to change to the bios of a different model card (nvflash thinks you have a 470 and you're trying to flash a 465 bios). Thus, I'm also pretty sure it's fine to say Yes. I know for sure I've said Yes to this question before and not bricked my cards.

But at this point in the process, I haven't typed anything yet. And I can tell you with absolute certainty that the eeprom was erased previous to flashing.

This represents the usbdrive just starting up, first thing, AFTER a failed windows load after I've tried reflashing.

It's not loading windows because it's booting up to your flash drive. Removing it should resolve the issue and should go straight to windows.
No, that's the screen I get before I even touch anything AFTER a fail. The usb stick is loading because I've already tried loading windows, and it won't. So I put the usb stick back in and try other options (or in this case, revert to s465).

Can you post the contents of the autoexec.bat file?

I think you should still be including nvflash -9. and that command if you want to make it a batch file.

A few things;

1. If you only have 1 card installed then remove the --index=0.
2. You need to add these lines before the line above.
nvflash --eraseeeprom
nvflash -r

First line to erase the existing bios which is the 465 and the second line is to remove the EEPROM write protect.

3. S465.ROM - Are you flashing your card back to stock 465?

The batch file should look like this;

nvflash --eraseeeprom
nvflash -r
nvflash -4 -5 -6 S465.rom

That's how the autoexec thing came when I downloaded it. I haven't touched it.

Should I change s465 to what I'm trying to flash it to or what? And then if I put all this in here, do I really need to type anything while in nvflash? I'm so confused

Then you're not doing any flashing at all. That line is calling S465.ROM (which I think is a stock 465 based on the filename) to be flashed on your card.

Do this;

1. Download this file > Attachment 175366 (Do not copy this file to your USB drive, you need to extract it first.)
2. Extract and copy the 2 files to your USB bootable drive and overwrite files when it says duplicate copy.
3. It contains 2 files the edited autoexec.bat and the twin470.rom that I am currently using and then reboot your machine using USB. It should flash your card to a 470. Type Y and/or YES to any question it asks you during flashing.

Just report back when you encounter any issues.

Same result. The autoexec thing simply did everything I was manually typing, so that was nice, but the result is the same. I would see the "starting windows" screen with the flying windows flag, but after that, nada.

Restarted, let autoexec do it's thing, reflash to s465.rom, and here I am. I think my card is not one of the magic ones.

The card simply just one of those who won't unlock. It's up to you what to do next. I would sell it or return it if you can.
