    Does it not work? I can't get winflash to run at all. RBE says there are no ATI cards...

    I've don DOS flashing before but it's a PITA and wanted to try the winflash way.

    No luck here either, and I've now migrated all my systems to W7/64.

    WinFlash is well known for not working with 64-bit-OSes.
     
    Duffman says thanks.

    Just an FYI... The easiest route I've seen/used to create a bootable usb flash drive is this HP tool:
    http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197

    Make sure to get the win98 files it has linked as well.

    Then copy atiflash and your modified firmware files to the usb drive, change the bios settings to boot from the USB device and you are good to go.

    After I found this method it took me like 10 minutes to get everything up and flashed.

    You can just find a friend with XP and take care of the format/make bootable part there and then you'll be good to go. I just used another xp machine to do it and then its good to go on my win7 64bit machine. Boots up fine into DOS.

    i just tried it here, and it still works fine for me in 7 x64. No idea why you guys are having trouble/needing XP

    Honestly I didn't even try running it from my Win7 machine. I used my mac with xp running in vmware because it was right in front of me. :laugh:
