Hey guys, I have an old Dell Dimension 4600 that still runs pretty smooth after upgrading some parts. I have also upgraded it from Windows XP to 7. I would like to flash the bios (to A12) since it is using and older version (A03) but think I have a slight issue. On the Dell website it states:
This file format consists of a BIOS executable file. The Universal (Windows/MS DOS) format can be used to install from Windows XP, Windows 2000, NT, Windows 9X, Windows ME or a MS DOS environment.
My question is, since I'm running off of Windows 7, will it be impossible to upgrade? What If I create a bootable USB with the file inside, would that work?
*I did try running the .exe but got a message stating that I must be logged in as administrator. I tried running as admin as well as going into safe mode and trying but same message appears.
Thank you all
