    I'm just trying to flash to the unlocked BIOS, but it spits out this redundant error, even when the file is right there, next to all the other files, in the C:/ folder.

    That flash was successful?

    I ask only because others that had tried back flashing were having trouble, Ill ping the others that have more first hand knowledge of this process and hopefully they might have seen this scenario.

    @Striker1234 @MahmoudDewy @Ashtrix and maybe @woodzstack might have seen something

    And of course @javers who also contributed quite a bit to our machine.

    It might help speed things along if you're comfortable providing a screen shot of your root directly, just so they can have a baseline to work off of

    Also check out the emergency backflash procedure in case things go awry
