Thread: How To Use Flash Update For Bios?

  1. #1
    Can I use a cd rom for a bios flash update? I don't have a floppy installed.

    No! The bios is written to run from floppy. You want minimal activity in the system when you flash. If you start trying to load CD rom drivers and things and a crash occurs, it would mean the end of your BIOS. Floppy drives only cost $5 to $25 anyway. Isn't your system worth it?
