Updating nvidia video bios dating length
Since I put two folders on my USB flash drive, I need to enter the appropriate folder.Me listing the directory of the folder I just went into. I am going to go through the motions of flashing the VGA BIOS, I will be using one of my “Back-ups” to perform this procedure.Remove DOS CD/DVD disk from drive, remove the USB drive, allow Windows to boot on the computer then format the USB flash drive to a FAT 16/32 file system.Re-copy the flashing utility and the BIOS you are flashing too.Like always I or Bjorn3is not responsible for your actions regarding flashing the VGA BIOS. The codes or commands I will be using are: Backing up the BIOS:: -s 0 C:atiflash -s 0 Since I am using a USB flash drive and it is on a FAT 16/32 file system and my HDD’s are using a NTFS file system DOS only recognizes the USB flash drive as a HDD. The -s switch is telling Atiflash to save the BIOS to our HDD (USB flash drive). If you are using multiple video cards, and you want to flash or back up each one, you just change the 0 to the next corresponding VGA card. I have 2 5870’s one is in PCI-E 1, the second is in my second PCI-E port, the first video card uses the 0, the second uses a 1 switch. Also that your DOS CD/DVD disc is in the CD/DVD drive. (Reminder You cannot use a Blue Ray drive, DOS does not recognize this type of drive)Then we will see an A: prompt.
