Default Softmod & Radeon 9800 SE

According to ATI Tool, I can unlock four additional rendering pipelines on my Radeon 9800 SE. It gives me a link to softmod.techpowerup.com, but I don't know how I'm supposed to install the mod.

http://www.techpowerup.com/softmod/downloads.php

I've downloaded the "Patched ati2mtag.sys (9500 -> 9700 and 9800SE -> 9800)", and then did a search for "ati2mtag.sys" on my HDD. The results were as follows...

C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\ati2mtag.sys (685 kb)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\ati2mtag.sys (1,736 kb)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ReinstallBackups\0000\DriverFi les\ati2mtag.sys (729 kb)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ReinstallBackups\0001\DriverFi les\ati2mtag.sys (1,736 kb)

Am I supposed to replace one of those files? If so, which one am I supposed to replace, and what do I do afterwards?

See there the same, just copy it and see how it goes. If not than go in safe mode and uninstall the drivers and reinstall again


Or you can do This

Find A BIOS from someone that has a 9800SE unlocked already than Dump the BIOS from ati tool, Floppy it, flash it on your computer done...!
**Make sure the BIOS you get it from has the same Core / Memory "Speed" has yours**


Let me know how it goes

I've already tried replacing all four files. Nothing happened even after I rebooted the computer. =/

I say you find A 9800SE BIOS that's been unlocked.

I found that on google, but if your memory Isn't 256-bit than you can't Flash it to an 9800Pro/XT since they both use 256-bit memory unless you edit the BIOS to use 128-bit and that's hard to do

Here is what I typed on Google:
