    i had evga 9800gx2,after a few months with crysis now it has error bios adapter 0 (BRO4.ROM) when i flash bios this card with nvflash,core 1 and core 2 are fine.Here is the problem:
    When i try to search google i find a lot is the same problem in 9800gx2,so now i need someone who has this card working fine could give me the original bios 9800gx299(adapter 0 / MB04.ROM.
    as you need usb boot in dos with nvflash in,and tpye
    nvflash --index=1 --save br04.rom
    then you have a backup rom file name BR04.ROM in usb,and send it to me here if you could,thanks very much if someone help
    that is the reason the 9800gx2 has error when sli two boards,not from the orginal bios adapter 1 and 2 you can find easy in this Forum/bios http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/...urer=EVGA&model=9800 GX2&interface=&memSize=0

    So thanks everybody so much once again ,i"m so very sorry my poor english..............
    for example from google
    I've done my best to use Search but this seems unresolved so far..

    (Please be patient with me, I'm new at this. In case it matters, I'm doing this on a Mac Pro 1.0, but the information might help out the hackintoshers out there.)

    Using nvflash to view the video card nets me:
    (command: nvflash --list >display.txt)


    <0> GeForce 7300 GT (10DE,0393,0000,0400) H:NRM B:03,PCI,D:00,F:00
    <1> BR04 (05BEh) (10DE,05BE,0000,0000) H:NRM B:08,PCI,D:00,F:00
    <2> GeForce 9800 GX2 (10DE,0604,3842,C892) H:SP0 B:0A,PCI,D:00,F:00
    <3> GeForce 9800 GX2 (10DE,0604,3842,C892) H:SP2 B:0B,PCI,D:00,F:00

    (Ignore the GeForce 7300GT, that's my original video card. What's curious to me is the BR04 entry.. I expected to see two entries for the GX2, but not three.)

    On a hunch, I dumped the ROM for all three GX2 entries:

    BR04:
    (command: nvflash --index=1 --save br04.rom)

    My next step is to create NVCAPs for all three and see if I can throw them into a .kext and see what I can do with them.

    In case it helps, these are the posts that got me started:
    (won't let me post links as this is my first post)

    I'll update this as I go.
