  1. Unfortunately, the only way to do it is with a Sandy Bridge CPU.

    If you know someone that has one, you can use that, or you can just buy a very cheap SB Pentium to do it.
  2. Can you borrow a Sandy Bridge CPU from a friend?

    If not, you will have to take it to a computer shop, and ask if you can borrow a CPU to update your BIOS, or Purchase a cheap SB CPU (and possibly return it after update, but personally I would keep it)
  3. I guess a core2duo is not even compatible as its socket 775 :/ and yeah I sent an email to the computer shop I guess they'll answer monday
