[Scaleo 400] Faulty update disk download or something else?

Postby mrdavid » Tue Dec 26, 2006 21:20

Hello!
I have a Scaleo 400, Celeron CPU 2,4 GHz.
When I downloaded this: FLASH BIOS UPDATE DISK (D1607) V4.06 R1.11
from the download area here I run in something I can't figure out.
I boot on the floppy and it says D1520_00.OMF missing. I look at the files on the floppy and sure enough there is no file with that name. There are other OMF files there but not the one seemingly needed. I do not know for sure if the flash went 100% with this boot but my gut feeling is that it may not have done that as one usually get a nice confirmation message after the ´flash´...
The download was listed when I entered my serial number so it should be the right one for my model should it not (?).
Any hint or help would be appreciated!

I used to have Phoenix BIOS 4.06 Rev 1.01.1520 07/01/03 but had to reset my BIOS. Seemed like a good idea to get the latest FLASH Bios Update after this (I guess I will revert to an older BIOS version otherwise after the reset).
And yeah, I am talking the pre-installed/out-of-the-box Windows XP Home Edition here.

I am curious, hasn't anybody else have problems like this, with this - or any other - Fujitsu Siemens PC model and corresponding download?
It doesn´t look good with just an uncontrolled error message about a missing file on the created floppy...

I don't have Scaleo400, but I updated BIOS for my Scaleo Pa 1519.

Try to use FLASH BIOS UPDATE (D1607) V4.06 R1.11.1607 ISO.
Simply burn it and boot from the CD.

FLASH BIOS UPDATE (D1607) V4.06 R1.11.1607 downloads some EXE file, wich I am doubted to run. #:)

Thanks for your reply!
I saw the iso, but frankly the exe felt much more effective to use.

I am not happy with them, but at least I more or less trust Fujitsu Siemens to keep their own exe safe on their own site. It is a shame that the exe file(s?) doesn´t do what it is supposed to do... It would be simple to check.
