Lenovo Laptop Bios Update
Hello everyone..im sorry if i posted my question in the wrong thread because i cannot seem to find the right tread for these.
i am having a hard time flashing my bios. i do not have a floppy drive and im using a usb flash drive. i dont know if this is a valid way in doing it. please brighten me up if i am doing the correct way.
first thing i did was to make my usb bootable. after that i downloaded the BIOS update from LENOVO. i am using a laptop thinkpad T43. the bios update was a diskette type of installation. i downloadded also a virtual floppy drive image. i extracted the downloaded bios to the drive A: and copied it to my USB flash drive. i am just confused because somebody told me to use win98 bootdisk. i tried that and saved the win98 bootdisk to mu USB and there were the same files from the bios extracted update and the win98 bootdisk like COMMAND.COM, AUTOEXEC.BAT, CONFIG.SYS...but if i put a check mark in the hide portected operating system file, those file types will disaappear.
i just dont know how to do it. hope anyone could help me. i will appreciate any suggestion and help. thanks
