    Execute the following (replacing __PCI__ with your cards PCI, for example, 0000:02:00.0):
    sudo su
    echo "1" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/driver/__PCI__/rom
    cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/driver/__PCI__/rom > ~/vgabios.bin
    echo "0" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/driver/__PCI__/rom
    The VGABIOS will then be in your home folder.
    (You should however check the vgabios with your favorite hex editor to make sure it's the vgabios in there, and not an error message, for example. Or "cat ~/vgabios.bin", you'll notice if it's the vgabios or not)

    However, there are also other methods, for instance ATITool (Win64/Win32/Dos) etc..
