Did you download the firmware onto the desktop ?
open the GTRom & then click on browse , & locate the firmware on your desktop.

If you still cant get it to work, try & find someone with a desktop (pc) with xp.
It should work for you then.

You`re grand mate, I know how frustrating these boxes can be ;)
Do you know anyone who has a flashed SV1?
You can do a box to box transfer (load the firmware from their box onto your box with a null modem cable).

Why carnt the flash be done on vista !!!!!!!!!
right mate ive only bought new lap top with vista so i think you should be grand but dont have a starview so basically when you open gtrom you have to add the bin file crypt 1.5 but it has to be unwrapped with winrar first once you have that added it should work but you might heve to change your com port to either 1 2 3 4 cos they are your ony options on gtrom

it defo just sounds like a com port problem just match your com port to the either of the com ports in gtrom and make sure your usb adaptor is installed on your computer with the disc it comes with or search the web for the driver

Try saving the loader to the desktop and right clicking on it and selecting run as administrator :err:

Just read again you say that the com port is set to 16? Needs to be 1 to 4 on computer and matched with the same in the loader :)
