    Hi I have an acer aspire 5542 Amd Athlon x 2 dual x 64 core (slic 2.0) and want to update the bios to slic 2.1 so I can use it with a fresh copy of windows 7, I have downloaded the windows 7 Bios software for the Laptop from the acer site (64 bit download) i have ran it as administrator from within windows but just keep getting Open flash.sys fail

    Any help greatly appreciated
