Im trying to flash my new 1015 to IT mode.

I made a dos usb stick with the data on it.
I followed the tutorials as far as the commands go but I have a problem when is type the first command:

dos log:
Code:
C:\>cd c:\sas2008

C:\SAS2008>megarec -writesbr 0 sbrempty.bin
DOS/31A -- Protected Mode Run-time  Version 7.35

Screen Picture:

then it hangs and I cant fill in any more commands

I've tried different usb sticks and I tried it in 2 systems but no luck so far.
I've also been googeling for hours no but I couldn't find I fix so I thought id just ask here.

I used this dos usb method: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/46707-ms-dos-bootable-flash-drive-create.html

and the firmware is located in the SAS2008 folder on the drive.

(im guessing its a dos settings thing but I don't know shit about dos :) )

solved.

sadly i really don't know what cause the problem or what fixed it.
i can however say what i changed so maybe if someone has the same problem they can try it:

i remade the usb,
i put the files in the root dir on the usb,
i put the adaptert in the first pci slot,
i used a diff usb sick.

so one of those changes (or a combo) solved my problem

The screenshot above has a comma instead of a dot in sbrempty.bin
That was probably it.
