Updating abit bios
Here's just an example for my motherboard (in your case, files will have different names, of course): Step 3: Burn a bootable CD which will emulate floppy device for us Next step is to burn the floppy image to a CD/DVD-RW media, but in a way that it can be booted afterwards.First we need to make a bootable CD image, and then burn it.The title of this article led me to it, and solved my problem.Any title that did not contain the term Linux would not have been found. COM /E:256 /P should become just: FILES=20 BUFFERS=20 SHELL=\COMMAND.We are fortunate that guys at FDOS site have prepared one suitable for us.
So, you could only update your virtual BIOS that way, theoretically. Was it a Free DOS compatibility issue with your brand of motherboard? Note that this is a good article because it's specific and informative, even if it didn't work for *you*. Gents: For the technical minority this BIOS-flashing discussion evidently is useful. you can flash a motherboard from linux, without using your stupid windows tools, jerks. My laptop had a lot of dust trapped between the fan and heatsink. If you break the connector, you’ll have to replace the whole motherboard. DO NOT SEPARATE THIS TAB FROM THE CONNECTOR, IT HAS TO STAY ATTACHED TO THE CONNECTOR. Now you can release the cable and remove the keyboard.Both memory modules, wireless card, cooling and and hard drive can be accessed from the bottom. Pull the hard drive to the right side until it’s disconnected from the motherboard. My Aspire 5100 had a 80GB 5400RPM SATA HDD installed. Grab the antenna cable connector with your fingers and unsnap it from the connector on the wireless card. Spread latches on both sides of the wireless card same way as you did with RAM modules. When the wireless card pops up at a 30 degree angle, pull it from the slot by the edges. Remove four screws marked with red circles and loosen two screws marked with green circles. You can upgrade it to a larger capacity HDD or SSD. You should use PC2-533 DDR2-667MHz 200pin SODIMM RAM modules.
But, I'm quite sure it's pointless and wouldn't work. he didn't do this to get dugg, he did it to help people. If you are a Linux user, the title communicates to you exactly what you need to know.
