Hi, i made a bad flash with my ATI HD3850 AGP

the problem is, after booting with pci card, atiflash with -p 0 shows the "rialto bridge" and with atiflash -p 1 the pc freezes.
booting without pci-card to do a batch flash was impossible because the pc doesn't boot and makes no-gfx post-code beep
i've also tried to boot windows to use atiwinflash, but same here ... freeze when starting this tool.
any ideas?

or should i try to flash the ati-bios over the rialto-chip? i don't think so because in winflash the rialto was shown as an additional adapter and i never touched this ...

sorry for the bad english :)

Hey. I have a really stupid problem with flashing:

I have made a bootable USB penn. In there i have installed DOS boot files, then after format i put in my bios file for 5770 HD, and ATIflash 3.79

So I boot to DOS

C> atiflash -f -p 0 asusunlockedbios.bin

But DOS can't seem to find the file. I have it extracted on my C disc as well as my USB pen. And the BIOS file should definately work as many other users use exactly this one (The BIOS that unlocks for some heavy OC'ing)

I have also tried to rename it to something shorter, like asusul and so on but with no results.

do a usb boot disk with win98se boot files, rename .bin file to 1.bin, edit autoexec.bat with flashing code... that should work i guess
