Default Flash your Hercules 9800 to a 9800 Pro!

Insider shows us how he upgraded his Hercules 9800 to a 9800 Pro using a simple dos program!

IMPORTANT, use the key combination ctrl-alt-del. Don't press the reset button!
Err... why?!

Does he think a cold boot will wipe out the newly flashed ROM?

normally that shouldn't be the case, will have to get back to you on that. 3D Rage boards user may have had issues after flashing their card & then pushing the reset button.

does this work with saphire 9800's as well? all the boards and the chips are basicly the same just the name and junk that comes with it is the main differences.

actually, if you look at the original discussion on which insider based this howto you will see that the person used a Sapphire 9800 card

just flashed my Sapphire 9800 Non-Pro last night with success using Flashrom (instead of ATI Flash Utility) and a 9800 Pro BIOS titled: 98-8004.BIN
so that should work fine if the memory can handle the higher default speeds
