i tried mailing the master of disaster, @Mini_Me
already, i don't know if he is still active on this thread, that's why im doing this post.
I started mining on my 5700XT-Rig in February, i flashed 3 Gigabyte OC 8 Gaming cards back then, i just remember vaguely, that i did have problems with one. In the end, it all went well
with the 2.93+ amdvbflash-tool over cmd.
However, with my 4th 5700xt, it doesn't
. I tried flashing with 2.93+
as usual because of the single-memory type
but the card bricked and bios or windows wouldn't post unless i shorted the bios chip
with "a pair of tweezers".
Now i'm back to windows
with the Gigabyte-Windows-flash-tool (it does post without shorting
) but the card is still not recognized in windows
(no adapter found) unless i continue shorting the bios-chip during start-up. How can i fix it? And how do i get a modded bios on there?
The bios i saved first (somehow not signed, i don't know about that) was with the device-number 731F. Would an unlocked, signed version of a bios for this card help?
Thanks in advance,
By looking closely at my cards, i discovered, that there are different builds
of the same model. Rev1, Rev2 yeah, different bios and so on
. What i mean by that is not a new PCB-Layout, but things soldered that are not soldered on the other ones
My theory is the following: 2 out of my 3 first cards have one connector not soldered to a place close to PCIE-Connectors and are therefore Rev 1 versions
. I didn't have much of a problem flashing them
, modded bios - no problemo. The other card has a connector soldered
there, however, the connector is not connected to anything. I did have problems with this card
, didn't save a modded version of the original, signed bios of this card to my pc, because it didn't work. (bios is locked). This is a REV2 Card
These differences are also noticeable on the device-id seen in amdvbflash. 730F is REV1, 731F is REV2
When i am force-flashing a 730F-Bios
on there (cards with no connector), windows won't boot
and im stuck on the bios loading-up screen of my h110 btc+. Now i need to find a way to get this card up and running again.
I tried flashing the bios of my other gigabyte-cards
, the stock versions, the modded versions, it either didn't boot into windows
, or the adapter was not found
unless i continued to short the bios-chip.
I tried flashing the bios of tech-power-up
and the bios of Mini_Me
to the card, again, it didn't work. I even switched PCIE-Slots
, nothing changed
. This card cost me 4 days, 6 hours a day. I looked up everything, tried everything, flashed all i could.
I will ask Alternate
on monday if they can provide me a working bios
or if they can give me Gigabyte's support-number
because Gigabyte.de/support is currently down
I will update you guys and, if working, provide the working bios.
