Hi all! I hope this is the right place to post this thread, if it's not then I'm sorry and I ask the admin who reads it to please move it to the right place. I have a laptop with a Phoenix bios and due to several reasons I'm eager to upgrade it. I have found the BIOS upgrade I need and made 99% (lol) sure that it's the right one for me. In the FAQs page of the manufacturer where the question is "How to flash my bios?" the answer is "Boot your computer to a floppy disk that contains Phlash.exe utility, a .BIN and .ROM files provided by manufacturer, and type phlash /B=xxxxxx.bin xxxxxx.rom /X at the command prompt. Restart system after completing this process." Well I bought this laptop PC in June 2008 so of course it does NOT have a floppy drive. So I have a few questions: 1) Is it the same if I boot from a cd-rom, dvd-rom or a usb flash drive? I would boot with DOS 6.0 and run the utility to flash the BIOS. I know I can boot the system with a usb flash drive so that's ok. I formatted my usb flash drive with a floppy image so I only have 355kb free (remember it has DOS), which is not enough to save the files I need to perform the BIOS upgrade. Which way should I go? Make it bootable without the floppy image? Or...? 2) In the update zip I downloaded, I have the pflash16.exe file, a rom file, 2 txt files, a bat file and a wph file. I did some research and found that the flash files are the rom and wph. But according to the instructions I read I need a BIN file, so...? Maybe they didn't taylor the answer to all the systems they sell? Should I ask them for help? 3) What do you recommend to fully backup my current BIOS? Thanks a lot in advance. Greetings!
