    Hi all,

    Am new to the forums, and am trying to get the oembios.exe to run on this machine. When I run it, I get an errorlevel message. I've read that updating the bios may help (this one is 2005), but I can't seem to find the right update.

    The bios is IBM 2akt48aus - it's inside a lenovo thinkcentre S50

    Any suggestions on how to proceed?

    Thanks.

    Are you runing a x64 bit system if so oembios.exe wont run on that. You could download dmi boot cd and boot from that it can check what SLP1.0 string you have in DMI area. But it will probably be Lenovo (OEMBIOS.CAT CRC32=5237B729) oembios files you need.

    thanks urie.

    It's windows xp 32 bit to the best of my knowledge. Will try your suggestions and let you know what happens. Will be a few days before I have access to the machine.

    cheers
