    Hello. I've been trying to flash my Gigabyte GV-R80T256V (Radeon X800XT VIVO) with the Asus X800XT PE AGP BIOS on this site as I've heard it can improve performance.

    However, both Flashrom and Atiflash give me problems. Flashrom always gives the error stating that it cannot read from the new BIOS file and Atiflash thinks I don't have an ATI card! :(

    I'm doing exactly what it says I must do on this site. Please help!

    atiflash is outdated and should not be used .. use flashrom

    your problem is probably that the filename of the bios is too long .. rename the bios file to bios.bin and try again
