    Hi, i haven´t been able to locate the BIOS for 1002:6740 103c:3388, i'm trying a bios flash with some 1002:6740 for the TPU database (Apple device, dell device and others), but is not working... i need the HP - DV6 related to 103c:3388.

    i did the -biosfileinfo (rom.bin), and it answers "BIOS P/N not found". i did try with at least 6 different Atiflash versions. and in the last 2 ones (417 & 411) don't even recognize the card, the test fails.

    in each test i did unlock and force the write procedure, but always fails.
    in each test the -i and the -ai works, and recognize the adapter in the pcie 0.

    i'm using the USB + Win98 boot files method to do the atiflash write procedure.

    all times i try atiflash -f -p 0 rom.bin, i get a ERROR 0FL01. tried in the 6 different version fo Atiflash. in every attempt i use prior the command with atiflash -unlockrom 0

    So, the first think i want to try is using an extraction from a bios of my exact reference. if possible, if someone who read this, provide me such thing.

    after that o during that, i am all ear for your suggestions.

    Thanks to everybody

    why are you trying to flash the bios I gotta ask it sounds like the mac is using a different board
    atiflash is bombing to prevent you from bricking it

    give me the output of atiflash -i and atiflash -ai
    you can try
    atiflash -p bios.bin -f -fa -fm -fs -fp
    be warned if you have the incorrect bios selected you will end up permabricking the card with a black screen
