How do I flash my bois without a Floppy drive? Tags: Motherboards BIOS Floppy Disk Flash DOS Last response: January 15, 2003 3:41 AM in Motherboards Share LancerEvolution7 January 14, 2003 10:58:11 PM I want to flash my bios, yet I don't have a floppy drive. The bios can only be run from a dos enviornment and I run XP. Is there anyways I can start up in DOS or how do you create a bootable cd without to much trouble?

Why waste $10, I don't even use floppies anymore. KWPLunchbox January 15, 2003 1:11:51 AM It depends on what motherboard you have. Some manufactures have Windows based applications that will flash the bios. I can flash my A7N8X with the Asus Update utility directly from the desktop. <font color=purple> You know its bad when license plate letters all look like file extensions </font color=purple> LancerEvolution7 January 15, 2003 1:57:33 AM I already stated that my bios can only be updated from a DOS enviornment ONLY in my first post.
