Bootable USB Drive, Flashing Nvidia GPU BIOS, Recovering from a Bad Flash

Posted on Thursday, April 15 2010 @ 04:47:49 CEST by

Some days you wake up knowing exactly what you are going to do. Some days you wake up intending one thing and end up doing another. Today was one of those days. Often we get motherboards or GPU's with early BIOS and as testing drones on you get updates. After a while it gets old yanking the one working floppy drive we have left out and booting to it to flash BIOS on GPU's and motherboards. Well floppy disks haven't been the greatest quality of late and it's better to boot to a known good USB Drive than an iffy floppy that may have been on the shelf for years.

Having had to do that today it struck me that other people might want easy access to a 'How to make a USB drive windows 98 bootable' for flashing their boards. Hours later here I sit with pictures in hand, bootable USB drive flashing my GPU BIOS and half wondering how I got here.

All that aside lets get started. First we are venturing into making a USB Stick bootable then we'll do a short how to flash an Nvidia cards BIOS thing (GTX-480 in this case). That's easiest because that's what we needed the USB Drive bootable for. Read more at Bjorn3D.
