sorry for the 2 month hiatus, but yes, the bootable cds wouldnt work for reasons unknown, i created like 5 of them, none would really get working so i jsut caved in and attatched a floppy drive. created one with atiflash, didnt work, reasons unknown, maybe because its a HIS ICEQ3 x1800gto so i used flashrom240, 237 and 16p. none worked. the same problems would come up-
device 0 not found
ati adapter not found
obviously the card is there and is working fine. before this a while back and as recently as a few hours ago i attempted atiwinflash or winflash or whatever the f*ck its called but it never worked, sure it may have just worked enought to royally screw sh*t up but i dont think it ever really did much, a problem of unmatching or something would come up and it never did anything. ive been trying to flash the bios ACE80 was kind enough to give me but without getting device 0 to be recognized im pretty much screwed.
just solved it. edited my own bios just like ace did for his, for some reason the one i have on mine edited worked but aces on mine didnt. very strange but im happy as a clam about my 16 pipes. thanks ace again for providing me with your bios and jc316 for the advice.
