I need to up-date bios as I bought new monitor, 1440 x 900 resolution, my bios does not support. Went to ASRock web site, downloaded up-date.
Mother board ASROCK K7S41GX 462 socket
I must up-date through "A:\" drive.
Create a bootable system floppy disk.
Download an updated ASRock BIOS file (WinZip format with .zip file extension) from the web site, unzip the BIOS file and save both ASRFLASH.EXE utility and BIOS file to the disk you created in step 1.
Boot from the disk you created in step 2.
At the "A:\" prompt, type ASRFLASH, hit space bar once, and type BIOS file name then press <Enter>. For example: A:\ASRFLASH K7S41GX2.00 <Enter> then you will see a message "Please wait for BIOS loading ROM".
After 30 seconds, you will see the message "Flash ROM Update Completed - Pass", then you have finished upgrading the BIOS.
After finishing upgrading the BIOS, please remove the floppy disk. Restart your system and press <F2> to enter the BIOS setup utility during boot up.
In Exit menu, please select "Load Default Settings" and press <Enter> to continue.
Select "Exit Saving Changes" and press <Enter> to exit the BIOS setup utility.
Now, system is booting up with new BIOS.
How do I create bootable floppy disk, I have bootable cd, will not work here
Up-date is 611 mb 2 files
plus boot info
Floppy holds 1.44 mb
Nero does not do floppy disks, Nero bootable CD is 2mb, so cannot be copied to floppy.
How can I boot computer and up-date bios?
Is there a program that will allow me to download boot info to floppy and still leave room for the up-date?
Should I exchange my new monitor (got a good deal) for one that has a resolution that my bios supports?
Is it OK to use this monitor if the PC does not support the resolution?
Damn I am confused!
