How to flash bios without floppy drive

Recommended Posts



I just got the parts for a new pc build for my m8, it's the first time I've ever used a DFI board. I can't get windows installed atm I get blue screen errors during the install process early on looks something like this :


A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.





Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.


Anyway so after reading a bit on this forum I discover maybe I should have bought the OCZ ram (it was like £65 ($100) more expensive though!)


Oh well hopefully I can get it stable with the GeIL.


Ok so I know I should really update the bios as my bios version is 01/25/2005 but my friend decieded he didn't want a floppy drive. Which leaves me with a bit of a problem how can I update the bios without windoze or a floppy drive?


Some kind of bootable CD with dos on it I'm thinking can anyone of you guys help me with finding one or making one?


Also are there any settings in the bios i should be changing? all I have done is set the cpu voltage to 1.4v and memory voltage to 2.7v. There are so many options in there to change it seems a little overwhelming.
