    Default Flashing Bios ?

    Firstly I have the latest bios version files and the utillity program and have made a bootable floppy. The problem is that there is no room to put these files on the floppy. I have been told that I can delete one or two files off the floppy.

    Would this be ok to do and if so which files am I ok deleteing. The boot disc is a Win M.E boot disc and is 1.16mb in size (size remaining is 232kb) and the files need 289kb.

    Many thanx for your help. Termy.

    knowing ME BD that they use ramdisk all you need is the command.com msdos.sys and io.sys (the latter 2 are hidden and system attributes) then copy the bios flasher and flash file then it should boot, if not create a boot cd then you'll have a lot of space then

    You can always copy the BIOS flash utility and the BIOS file to a second floppy and then run it from that once you have booted from the first one.
