No, you need to create a bootable USB drive, and use nvflash in DOS.

nvflash -5 -6 msi560.rom

But again though, do this knowing full well that it COULD brick your card. I have no intentions of doing anything malicious to that BIOS file. I honestly do think this thread is hilarious, but I'm not going to intentionally brick your cards either.

But again though, nvflash is a DOS program. It has to be run in DOS.

Version 5.95.0.1 can be used in windows, I used it with my Palit GTX 460.

Please don't brick this card! Just Vmod your BIOS and get a few more MHz out of it.

Use the DOS version. The Windows version didn't work on my 470 at all either. Gave me the same problem. And I used my exact same BIOS, just with an unlocked voltage cap.

Absolutely WORST case scenario from this BIOS flash is that the card won't work anymore. If that happens, they'll have to either blind flash it back (another reason to use the DOS version), or they'll need a secondary card so they can see to do the flash (again, you will NEED the DOS version for this).

OK. Finaly I made it with the bios. If anyone has the same problem as I did here are the steps:

Windows 7 (32 bit)
1. place the nvflash files (nvflash for windows latest version) in the root of the HDD/SSD for easy navigation to these files
2. cmd (run as administrator)
3. navigate to the root of the drive and than run the program as follows
4. nvflash -r (to remove write protection - this way there is no need for board ID matching or anything so it can flash any bios)
5. nvflash -4 -5 -6 file.rom (file is the name of the bios)
6. Type YES
7. type y.

Done. There you have it!

Unlucky for me, I loaded ASUS DirectCu II Bios which has very high clocks. The computer posted. I was unable to enter Win7 since it stopped while the windows spash screen was on.

Tried the second OS - Win XP - stopped responding after booting so I see the desktop but I can not activate anything. Maybe it is drivers issue since I have not installed the latest drivers from nVidia that support the 560ti. However the resolution was fine and no prompting for new hardware.

Luckily, I have an onboard video so I switched to it, Win7, downloaded the latest GPU-Z which recognizes the 560ti. When I tried to select the nVidia card which was available I saw GTX 460. Once I selected it it showed ASUS as vendor. Everything else was not available (like memory speed, clocks) but it only showed the shaders count. It said 336.

There I have it. 336 and there are no unlocked shaders.

I tried to select the tab where it showes voltages, temps and so on and it was showing just memory speed and clocks as zeros.

I flashed back to my previous bios and everything is OK. Maybe the drivers would have solved the crashes (if they were the latest) but the shaders count did not change. Once I get the time I will try with the nVidia vanilla bios and see what happens (the clocks will be reasonable for my card to deal with) but I am not that much of a believer any more.

So with the 560ti bios and the latest drivers the card might work (probably will since the guy that first flashed the bios confirmed that everyhting is fine). I will confirm on that later my self. But be careful if you want to play with this not to have higher clocks with the new 560ti bios. The 560ti bios that I tried had outrageously high clocks. My card can go 880 Mhz with 0.962 default voltage but the bios that I flashed had 900 Mhz default core speed. Maybe this is why I had no go in Windows.

Thank you for the input guys.

It's easy. Download nvflash for DOS. Make yourself a bootable DOS USB drive. Put nvflash to it. Put your BIOS on it, along with your stock BIOS just in case...then boot to it, nvflash -5 -6 MSI560.rom. Press y when prompted. Bingo, you're done! Remove your USB drive and press Cntrl Alt Del to restart.

it's so easy... you boot into DOS and type "nvflash -4 -5 -6 msi560.rom" hit Y 3 times and then hit ctrl+alt+del and reboot
post #240 of 331
So far that's 2-nil, I guess you win. The 8th cluster is either laser cut or not physically there.

Now, my XFX card's BIOS has no vendor id, listed as unknown in GPU-Z. I went to change that, but the integrity of the file is red when I open it in nibitor (6.0)

Is it still safe to use? I hate it not having a vendor id. It's listed as Unknown (1B0A)
