well personally i have a program that flashes BIOS for me. It was a utility that came with my motherboard. If you can find another program that does that to download, it makes things very easy.

Usually, you put your BIOS flashing tool and BIOS ROM in the floppy. Then it would work.

EX:

A:\AMIFLASH 002463.ROM

Unless you have a major problem with your computer flashing for a minor update could turn your baby in to a paper weight. If you really need to have this, get a shop to do it for you. or that could be the most exspencive center peice that you ever bought.
