Asus Crosshair Formula IV NOT BOOTING?! help!! - Page 2

post #11 of 15
There you go...edited last post. I did both of mine without a hitch. Worked fine, very easy and no flashing problems.

Short version...
- Download latest Winflash
- Unpack the Winflash download onto your desktop in a folder called "winflash"
- Save the 6970 BIOS in your Winflash folder and name it unlock.bin (instead modded 6950 BIOS I uploaded)
- Click Start Button
- Type "cmd"
- Right click the entry and select "Run as Administrator"
- Black command prompt windows opens
- Type "cd %USERPROFILE%\\desktop\\winflash"
- Type "atiwinflash -unlockrom 0" <-- the 0 means first adapter, if you have multiple cards, physically uninstall all but the one you want to flash
- Type "atiwinflash -f -p 0 unlock.bin" (instead of unlock.bin it'll be whatever its saved as, I think modded.bin)
- It should complete the flashing process with a message saying something with "verified".

Well you'd have to reinstall windows with new hdd in. In which case you just connect other HDD, install it to new drive, and during installation you can either delete/reformat other hdd, or first load windows onto new HDD THEN delete or reformat the old windows 7 partition/disk through disk management in windows. (Right click on computer in start menu, then manage, then disk management)

And yes follow those instructions. Theres the ones form the guide, but if the BIOS is LOCKED, then you'd have to do those anyways, so mine as well just start with those instructions.

Hey, I'm having the same issue. How did you resolve it? I'm not getting anything on the screen and the motherboard is not giving any beeps to indicate what's up.
