    If you are using onboard vga or pci to boot [onboard vga = 0] try the -i command at 1 to see if adapter is at this address

    Example: atiflash -i 1

    Note: If the adapter is not being found at 0 or 1; then it may be that the vga bios was damaged during the last flashing process or *in this case flashed with the wrong ID, unfortunatly I do not think it can be recovered unless you are able to find a way for the card to be recognised by atiflash. [Note = *] Example: you would need to locate the bios chip on the card and connect pin 1 to pin 8 with a length of wire - [example of process in last post - http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=175521 ]

    Make sure you are using this version of atiflash -

    Note: it is best practice to flash bioses from a dos prompt
