So i recently found out that my Diamond Radeon 4870x2 came with XFX Bios on it. My warranty is threw diamond and it came with 2 years. but diamond is telling me they wont replace my card because of the BIOS.

So my solution is to flash the Diamond ones onto the card.
I Used the tutorial on this site to setup my DOS flash drive and i put the bios and ati flash onto the drive. Boots into DOS pefectly i then used the command atiflash -i to display the card.

0- is the master
1- slave

Note: that i am plugged in threw my onboard not the card while doing this.

The bios on my flash drive and titled R700M AND R700S .bin

So i then use the command
Atiflash -p 0 R700M.BIN

Then i get this

Old SSID: 2440
New SSID: 2542
SSID MISMATCH
ERROR 0FL01

Anyone know whats up with this or where i went wrong?

U need to use -f to force the flash since the ID's do not match. It should look like atiflash -f -p 0 r700.bin. Hope this helps ya.
