I would never try to flash my vga card bios through Windows.

And why do you need to update your card's bios, anyway?

I guess reading online that Palit release a new version for the 460's that increase performance by 8-10% for the Sonic Platinum versions, so I wanted to tackle that.

Stupid question I guess, how would I do it in Bios? I was just following Palit's instructions to do it in Windows which doesn't seem to be working.

Dont forget to flash the second card first, then go into widows to see if everything is ok.

WHat you will need to do is in DOS type this

nvflash --list

This will list the cards in your system, they will be numbered, you then take this number and use that in the next command line which should be like this :

nvflash -i1 -4 -5 -6 palitbios.rom

Substituting the -i1 part for the number of your card (-i2 /-i0)

You may need to remove the copy protection on the bios too, but as its the official one i dont think you will. (nvflash -i1 -r) if you need to, remeber do it for both cards
