    Whilst flashing my sapphire X800GTO2 i recieved the following message in DOS

    Serial Rom
    bios device = 0x5D4F
    asic device = 0x5D4F
    existing SSID =0x1600
    new SSID = 0x0302 error 0FL01

    it then ask`s if i want to force flash

    If all goes well which driver`s do i then use the original drivers or drivers for the x 850 or others

    what bios are you trying to flash moded one from the article
    and what you also want to do is uninstall ati catalyst so when you flash its gonna detect the card as new hardware then pop in your saphiore cd install as if it was a new card than update to new catalyst from ati site it should work as long as you are using right bios

    Apparently, the bios W1zzard posted is not the same as the bios that the cards actually have on them. I looked at it just a few minutes ago and saw lots of differences between his original and my original GTO2 bios.
