Camera doesnt respond during firm update

I have a Powershot ELPH 320 HS and just downloaded the 1.00D version from the download page onto my 128 GB SD card. However, when I attempt to update my firmware, the screen simply shuts down and none of the buttons (On/Off or Images preview) function. I tried removing and reinserting the battery, but CHDK does not boot when I turn it on (via the on/off button). When I tried to start it using the preview button, I needed to update the firmware and shuts down once more.
What should I do?
Firmware update shows 1.0.2.0-> 1.1.0.0

Are you sure that your camera has the firmware 1.00D?

I'm not sure how to check my camera's firmware version. I tried booting the other two versions separately as well, but none of them worked. However, for 1.0.2, a screen appears after I press the OK button, displaying the CHDK version for about 2 seconds before it shuts down again. But this time I can switch the camera on again using the playback and power button, unlike last time where I had to remove the battery pack each time before switching it on.
I've attached images of what it looked like before it shut down.

This means 102a is the correct version, but it's crashing after CHDK loads

As caefix suggests, this port has a known problems with the "firm update" booting method and you can try the "bootable SD card" method instead https://chdk.fandom.com/wiki/Prepare_your_SD_card

To use this, you'll need a card which is formatted FAT32. By default, cards larger than 32GB will be formatted exFAT, which these cameras cannot boot from. While you could probably format your 128GB card FAT32, you cannot do it in camera or easily on windows without 3rd party tools. Getting a cheap 32GB card for CHDK may be the most straightforward approach.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
