Re: How to Flash BIOS with Flash Drives?

Hey this as simple as you are doing with the help of the Floppy Disk. To perform the same first connect your flash drive to computer and then copy the BIOS file to it and then restart your computer. Boot from the Flash drive and then get into the BIOS Flash utility. Now select the Flash ROM and hot the Enter key from Keyboard to flash the BIOS. This will Flash the BIOS through the Flash drive.

Hey the flashing of drive is not advisable as it can cause the boot dead if you are not doing it properly. If you have taken any step wrong you will make the system hang up for long time. So its better to ask for the people who are having then good knowledge about the flashing of the BIOS. Also the different motherboard having the different setting for the same. So take the step according to your Motherboard.
