I am attempting to flash the middleton mod for an x61s so the restriction on allowed wifi cards will be gone. I extracted the contents of the middleton mod (I would post the link of where I downloaded it from but I do not have 20 posts yet; source should be reliable) and looked at the README file. I decided to create a bootable CD and flash the BIOS that way. I have the x61s connected to a USB DVD-CD drive, the battery is charged, and the x61s is connected to an AC adapter as well. Well I get this message when attempting to boot the CD. Code: IBM IDE CD-ROM Driver Version 3.20 Copyright (C) IBM Corp., 1994, 2003 All rights reserved Driver was not installed. CD ROM drive was not found Device driver not found: 'TPCD001'. No valid CDROM device drivers selected. Bad command or file name. Invalid driver specification. Invalid drive in search path. Bad command or file name. Anyone have any idea why the bootable CD will not run the BIOS update?
