It's not clear what you are trying to do. If you select to erase the entire flash chip then yes, your Carnivore will not work anymore and you will need another cartridge (with disk drive) to boot to MSX-DOS, start C2MAN and flash the boot block, IDE and FMPAC BIOSes. It's easier to just erase the directory. Then you will have 8mB of Flash available for your experiments. But all the games on the cartridge will be gone.

Please use the DSK2ROM1, 2 or 3 RCP preset from our repository for such large games. These are disk games converted to ROM.

https://github.com/RBSC/Carnivore2/tree/master/Presets

These presets are for K4, A8 and A16 mappers.
