Default 9800pro to a 9800XT

i searched TF, and nothing came up. right now im trying to mod my 9800pro to a 9800XT. i cant seem to flash my bios.

i have an ati 9800pro 128Mb with hynix memory, and a R360 core.

i downloaded flashrom. and a gecube 9800XT 128MB for hynix memory. into a bootable dos floppy disk. i type in flashrom -f -p 0 9800XT.bin and a couple of seconds go by, it says read error. or file error. and it says press 1 to continue. i press 1. and it goes back to />A or what not. i tried a club3d bios and it still doesnt work. (i also renamed my files to 9800XT.bin) i WANT TO HAVE A 9800XT!

can someone give me a link to another bios. or opinons on what coud be wrong?

Awesome. I'm glad it worked for you. Sometimes when you flash bioses like that you get artifacts like doing it from 6600 to gt. I guess you were lucky.

well its probably mostly i had the R360 core, and the hynix whatever memory. and i dunno. but usually the 9800pro is probably the easiest to flash. or the highest chances. actually the 6800 to a 6800GT just a little slower would be that one, cause you can just do like 2 clicks of the mouse and you just unlocked 4 pipelines and one vertex shader. anyways. i like it now i have a 9800XT not a pro lol
