Can't Flash Bios
Posted 25 July 2006 - 03:24 AM
Anyways, a friend of a friend installed all of the hardware and asked me to get the bios/dashboard going for him. Sounded easy enough, but now I can't get past go.
I have tried connecting the USB adapter to my PC and Windows sees the device, and the red-light on the chip comes on, but when I launch X-Control the light on the chip never goes out and the red-x in the upper left-hand corner of the software never goes green.
Can someone point me in the right direction???
Thanks in advance.

its kinda tricky the first time around. if I remember correctly....
first you plugin your x-chip,
then (assuming your running xp)
a wizzard should come up asking if you want to install a driver. go ahead and go through that. If it asks you for a directory look in C:/program files/x-chip/usb drivers/ezusb.sys
once thats all set, fireup X-control.
it may ask you to go through the driver thing again, select the directory again if needed,
then you should be looking at the red LED on the chip go out (if i remember correctly) and the red X in the x-control window turn to a green X allowing you access to the bios banks. remember that the x-chip uses its own base file type bios so stick with either the orginal cromwell or X-chip_evox_V1.3 bios.
(if you need more guidence hit me up)
remember! the order of the usb driver installation may vary slightly, but its still important to keep a similar order to the explanation above!
