Bios updates on floppy?

Postby ducaducaduc » Sun Jan 22, 2006 8:49

Hi all,just a daft question,if I download the bios updates for a D1170 mainboard onto a floppy,will the floppy update my bios?Or do I need a specific updater program to do the job for me?
Regards,

Neither this nor that.

You need to download the update (it is a .exe file), then run it. It will create a bootable floppy disk. Boot from this Floppy, everything you need is on it. You will be told what to do by the bootdisk.

Sorry, from your description I don't really see what happened. Have you already booted from the floppy or are you stil trying to get the bootable floppy created?

Hi again,
created boot disk,this is what happens:
Post 2000 updates
all ok to finding update area.
update area...done
loading fileP6-068A.004
P6.0686.004
P6.0683.004
P6.0681.004
P6.0665.004
NO SUCH FILE
TRYING *.SNI...
P6.0665.SNI:
NO SUCH FILE OR DIR
A:\A:\
Tried pre 2000 updates with pretty much the same effect.
It's for a celeron 1000 processor,nothing too special,already have a D1170 running a pentium 3 1000 in the house-any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
Regards,
Phil

Ah, OK, so the BIOS update is OK, only the microcode update is not finding the correct file. Try this disk:
