    I need to flash my Sapphire X1600XT 256MB PCI-E video card with an older BIOS version. The P/N differs on the older version of the BIOS by one number at the end.

    My current P/N:

    11x-5C8801SA-009

    P/N of BIOS I need to flash to:

    11x-5C8801SA-009


    I have tried ATIWinflash and ATIFLASH in Dos but the BIOS would not flash because of the different P/N's. (I tried the -f flag in ATIFLASH to force the flash but it also did not work)

    Is there anyway of changing the card's P/N or forcing the bios flash to go through?

    I also tried a modded version of flashrom but it did not detect my video card.


    Thanks in advance

    Use atiflash v3.10 and use this command:

    atiflash -p -f -newbios 0 biosname.rom

    that should do it, not sure if you need that -newbios switch thou.

    Hey, thanks for the response.

    I actually already tried that with no luck. I get the following error message:

    ROM Preserved
    ROM not erased

    Error 0FL01 : Press "1" to continue
