Flashed bios fail

So I have flashed dozens of ATI/AMD cards without any issue. This is my first Nvidia and of course was a huge fail.

I have a MSI 980 ti Armor 2x in my file/plex server. The fans don't turn off nor go under 32%. I wanted to flash a EVGA ACX 2.0 or MSI Gaming that had the fan off. So I used the nvflash64 -6 name.rom and the computer instantly black screened (I didn't disable the nvidia display driver as I didn't know was supposed to until later)

So I let the PC "flash" for 10 minutes and nothing happened. So I took the 980ti out and put into my main PC with my 1070ti. It would either fail to load windows or black/blue screen with the 980ti installed as secondary.

So how do I fix this failed flash. Luckily I saved the stock rom and was able to get it off my server and have a bootable USB and nvflash on it. I could try with my 1070ti as primary and flash in dos with the bootable usb?

I also have a 1700x + RX480 may try to see if can flash from windows there?

put a good GPU in slot 1, put dead GPU in slot 2, and boot into Windows. Uninstall the 980 from Device Manager, restart, do NVFlash again.

just make sure you use --list and find the device index # for the 980 when you flash so you don't flash the wrong card.
