Problem with upgrading bios
Hello. I'm new to these forums. I found out about sysopt from a google search and this seemed like a real nice site. I hope I enjoy my time here
Well I have a problem with upgrading my BIOS on our family computer. We're using an Intel D850MV motherboard with an i850 chipset. On the intel site I found the exact bios upgrade for us. I put it on a floppy and rebooted the computer. It detected the floppy and started installation. The screen said it would take 3 minutes when it only took 10 seconds. Then it told me to eject the diskette and reboot. I did but when I looked at our bios version it wasnt upgraded. What should I do?
I have had that problem with my D865PERL board. It typically happens when the check sum is bad on the floppy image (or some sort of error has occured).
I would re-download the BIOS from Intel and create another disk. Before you create the disk perform a full chkdsk and format it (not quick). That will help eliminate data corruption as your cause. If that doesn't work let us know.
Once my boards BIOSes became a non-floppy format they always run that fast becasuse they load from the hard disk.
Ok thanks I'll try that now
