    Use this nvflash version: nvflash windows 5.100.0.1 it'll work with your card.

    Be sure to run "nvflash --save backup.rom" just to be safe.

    Usage:

    Primary Commands:
    Code:
    Update firmware:            nvflash [options] 
    Save firmware to file:      nvflash [options] --save 
    Compare adapter firmware:   nvflash [options] --compare 
    Update TV data:             nvflash [options] --tv 
    Display version:            nvflash [options] --version []
    Display firmware bytes:     nvflash [options] --display [bytes]
    Check for supported EEPROM: nvflash [options] --check
    Write protect EEPROM:       nvflash [options] --protecton
    Remove write protect:       nvflash [options] --protectoff
    Change soft straps:         nvflash [options] --straps=
    Set IEEE 1394 GUID:         nvflash [options] --guid=
    Set IEEE 1394 GUID source:  nvflash [options] --guidsource=
    List adapters:              nvflash [options] --list
    Options:
    Code:
    help         ?            Display this screen.
    save         b  Read EEPROM and save to .
    compare      k  Read EEPROM and compare with .
    tv           x  Transfer TV data from file to EEPROM.
    version      v  Display file version and ~CRC32
                                 (if no filename, acts on display adapter).
    display      d [bytes]    Display 256 the first bytes of the EEPROM
                                 (default is 256 bytes)
    check        c            Check for supported EEPROM.
    protecton    w            Write protect EEPROM (only on some EEPROM's).
    protectoff   r            Remove EEPROM write protect (only on some EEPROM's).
    straps       m    Change soft straps.
       format is: AND Mask 0, OR Mask 0, AND Mask 1, OR Mask 1
    guid         q      Set the IEEE 1394 GUID in the firmware image
                              (GUID is in the form of 16 hex digits).
    guidsource   1  Set the source of the IEEE 1394 GUID.

    nolight      l            Do not light keyboard LEDs.
    overridetype 5            Allow firmware and adapter PCI device ID mismatch.
    overridesub  6            Allow firmware and adapter PCI subsystem ID mismatch.
    reboot       y            Reboot the PC after other tasks completed.
    keepstraps   g            Keep the soft straps already present in the EEPROM
                              after flashing the new image.

                              image when grounding the STRAP_SUB_VENDOR pin.
                              This allows flashing a corrupted or erased EEPROM.  
                              Note: Make sure there is a physical EEPROM present

    Are you first booting from a device with nVFlash on it?

    honestly i searched google for 10 minutes about how to use it and found nothing, so i need a step by step instruction list, because i don't understand at all what to do. from what you said, i guess you stick nvflash on a bootable disk, and possibly some other files, like the system files included, and the bios that i want to flash. then i boot it and use the commands to do the flash.

    That's pretty much it.

    Here's an extensive guide on vBIOS flashing:

    The version I linked is for Windows 32/64, it does NOT run from dos, you use the Windows command prompt.

    To flash go to the nvflash directory in command prompt and type "nvflash biosfilename.rom" without quotes and with the actual name of your bios file.

    alternatively you can make a batch file for it, just open a text editor and type in:
    nvfash.exe vbios.rom

    Then save this as flash.bat and put it in the same directory as nvflash, then name your bios file vbios.rom and double click the batch, it'll prompt for elevated privileges and flash the bios in a command prompt Window, if you want to make a batch file for backing up put in a text editor:
    nvflash.exe --save backup.rom

    save as backup.bat, hope this helps.

    What is the actual name of your bios? I doubt it is vbios.rom ?

    I prefer putting nvflash and the bios onto a bootable usb flash disk and boot from it.
