    I have an XFX 780i board and 2xATI 5770 cards and was wondering if the BIOS can be flashed to the HP Blackbird so I can use Crossfire? AWDFlash 8.94 says the BIOS is not compatible and 8.65 hangs at "save the current BIOS" prompt. If I can get this working, it will save me from investing in an ASUS Rampage Formula x48 board so I can use the current Q9550 CPU and DDR2 ram. Any help you can provide would be awesome, thanks.

    Hi Binksy, I still do intend to finish the XFX P10 BIOS, I have an XFX 790i board heading my way shortly.

    It will most likely be completed, tested and uploaded in the next 4-5 weeks, depending on when I get the board.

    Not too much longer...

    Unfortunately the XFX 790i board has been delayed until the end of July.

    Will update the thread once I have it in my hands.

    If I understand correctly the last mentioned mod is to enable crossfire on 790i.

    I have been searching for any info on getting LLC for the XFX. Do you know if this is simply a matter of flashing to the EVGA bios (Considering both cards are reference and both use Award-Phoenix bios) or if there is a hardware difference? This is the only thread I've found discussing these bioses.... so hopefully I am not hijacking the topic, but if I am, I'm fully a newb here, just tell me where I should stick my post...:rolleyes:

    The new P10 will not allow 16gb of mem but the P09 I have will. Should that be? (Fully understand if not known...)

    I have no idea why that happens - the 790i only officially supports up to 8GB of RAM, so if you got 16 GB to work at all I'm impressed!

    Motherboard EVGA nForce 780i SLI (132-CK-NF78-B4)

    Hi Guys,

    I have the Motherboard EVGA nForce 780i SLI (132-CK-NF78-B4) with the HP BIOS version;
    "Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = 6.1.7601.17514 Or SMBIOS 2.4".
    I did see some of the instructions but is anyway someone can show me the appropriate steps to take for the update.
    I tried before and it tells me that is not the correct number. I have performed bios updates before with ease but
    never multiple steps or how to save the bios.
    All I want to do is to update the CPU to the Core 2 Extreme and maybe put 2 GTX295s. I would hate to change the motherboard. I'm not really impressed by the new ones that have come out especially the LGA 2011 with default rate between 25%-30%.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    Hi doggyfication69, sorry for late reply - what BIOS version is currently on your motherboard?

    Hello!

    I have an issue with flashing my BIOS:

    I have the 790i Ultra SLI but it was made by EVGA for Alienware.

    It's up to P06 and I need to update it.

    BIOS info:

    Current BIOS version: 2.053.D6
    Current BIOS date: 6/25/2008
    Current BIOS ID: 6161MB04
    Flash ROM type: W39v08A
    Flash ROM size: 1024 MB
    BIOS manufacturer: NVidia

    Now I looked at the list of BIOS IDs and didn't find 6161MB04 on there.

    I'd like to force flash but I want to use the right one.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.
