try making a bootable pe windows on a flashdrive https://www.aomeitech.com/pe-builder.html i have flashed 100+ drive in that it should work
the asus flasher wont work on that one no .net but that eliminates the software variables completely.
then you just try asus 3.10mk with the lg flasher and see if it works if not your probably just better buying a preflashed one
because then your sata controller or something is not passing the commands
I'm in PE now but the lg flasher won't launch, it should just launch if I try to run it yeah? No extra steps needed?

Edit: tried to launch from cmd and got the attached
its not a dos program you need a semi full windows environment use the pe i linked

I did use the one you linked
If I try to launch the flasher from the gui it doesn't do anything and if I try to invoke it from command line (which is just the slow way of doing it via gui) it gives that error

All the defaults applied for the pe should be fine yeah?

Edit: I did choose 64 bit, do you use 32?

i did use 32 because old dos flash needed it but i wouldn't think that would matter but i guess try 32 bit

this is a weird one the only other thing i would think it is beside the flashers not liking your sata controller is if lg has another version of 1.04 that is different from the other and it blocks it again.
you are sure you are selecting asus 3.10mk?

Definitely selecting the 3.10mk
Manufacture date is April, so I guess it's possible since I've seen a lot of the posts referencing the NS55 1.04 mention a feb date.
But you'd know better than me on that

I grabbed it from there and relabled it cause I saw another post mentioning issues with a long file name

Edit: downloaded again just in case I got a bad copy, no change

All good, the help is much appreciated even if we didn't crack the case tonight.

If you wanna get hands on with a 1.04 I got mine from PCCasegear

And hey at least now we know 32bit is the only thing to run the flasher haha

Edit: Further bad news, tried using my NAS booted off the PE which is the middle set of hardware between my win 7 and win 10 and I got the same error as on the win7, that doesn't seem ideal

I have had heaps of these drives, mostly manufactured in April and never had a problem flashing them. I use the asus flasher with 3.10-MK then flash whatever firmware I want after that. This is all done on my win10 64bit machine.

Any thoughts on what else to try? I feel like we've been pretty comprehensive in our testing so far

What motherboard do you have just out of curiosity?

Gigabyte H370N-WiFi

Did you fix your AHCI settings that you had messed with before trying again?

Hmm, I've got a z370 so I wouldn't think there wpuld be much difference in our sata controllers

I didn't touch the ahci again, do you have yours set to use or not use ahci?

Never touched it so it is whatever the default is.
