View Full Version : Me Bios update

I wish to update the Bios on my motherboard. It is a Gigabyte 7ZX with twin Bios.The instructions require a floppy to be formatted in Dos as 'format A:/s'. Unfortunately my ME O/S says 'sorry son you can't do that any more'. I have formatted a disc on another machine running Windows '95. Can I use this? If so are there any special requirements? Will the update do both Bios chips? Thanks in anticipation.
Tom.

cheak out www.ping.be/bios/
disk should be ok. the main thing is that it is free of scrap data before you copy the new bios and flash utility onto it. tips- use a u.p.s, turn off any mother board virus cheakers, turn off any bios cacheable/shadow rom settings.
i don't know about the dual bios, i havn't needed to flash a dual one yet.

dear tom all you need to do is go into control panal and double clik add/remove progs
clik the third tab over its to make a dos boot disk

once done insert it into the floppy drv then reboot at the menu choose the option minimal and the flash your life away as instructed in the readme file for your bios upgrade
