Help with BIOS update for MSI MS-7173 (RC410M)
  

Please help me as I am looking forward for BIOS update. The reason for this is that I want to install the Windows Vista business on my pc. The motherboard model is MSI MS-7173 (RC410M) and the entire BIOS string is 63-0100-000001-00101111-060206-RS400-1ADCF001. I would like to mention the other number that is shown at the startup such as RC410M A7173AMS V1.2. So my question is that, is there update to stop the system from freezing after a Vista install? Below I have mentioned my Pc specification:
  • Intel Pentium 4 processor 631, 3 GHz (dual core)
  • A7173AMS RC410M BIOS Ver. 080012
  • Super Talent T5UB1G8C4 DDR2-533 1GB/64x8 CL4 S-RIGID Memory
  • ATI Radeon Express 200 Series?ATI RC 410 Chipset (onboard video)
  • WDC WD2500JB-55REA0 (250 GB)
  • Lite-On LDW-401S DVD+RW
  • Sony CRX230EE CD-RW
  • PCI SoftV92 Modem
  • Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC (onboard)
  • KDS Visula Sensations VS-77/VS-70/VS-7p monitor (AKA: Northgate model KM-718 or Sampa SM-718)
  • Power Man Model # IP-P350AJ2-0 350 W switching power supply

According to me it will work. You can perform BIOS update to install the Windows Vista business on your pc. I have done the same thing by upgrading Windows Vista Home basic to Windows Vista Business. But mu configurations of the system are as follows:
  • AMD Phenom II X4 840
  • : MSI 890FXA-GD70
  • : MSI R6870 TwinFrozr II : 2x 2GB Hypertec DDR3-1333 + 2x 4GB Mushkin DDR3-1333
  • : 1x Samsung 750GB SATA2 HDD
  • : LG GH22 SATA DVD/CD writer
  • : Coolermaster Centurion 530 ATX case
  • :MSI Media Live (with MSI E350IA-E45 inside!),
  • :Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit SP2

As far as I am concerned it can be done but it will lag the performance of the system. During BIOS update the BIOS shows a UMA i.e. the Uniform Memory Access frame buffer size of 128 and it works fine. It can also be maxed up to buffer size of 256. If you are interested than you can add an ATi Radeon 9550 AGP 256MB Graphic Card DDR2 8X by leaving the onboard graphics.

I want to let you know that to avoid further major problems in future download the link properly. As on internet you will find many websites which provides download file or link for BIOS, avoid them. Try downloading the link from official website so that you get a proper and complete setup of BIOS. While updating your BIOS don?t interrupt the process. It might take several minutes and your PC may restart several times.

I agree with the fact for downloading proper setup of BIOS from official website. Your BIOS will be updated without any troubleshooting. I recommend you to visit valid website and check the instruction for updating BIOS. You can also watch the video to update BIOS from the Youtube. Even I earned the same from Youtube to avoid mistakes and system crash. If not then you can perform BIOS update under guidance of valid person who is aware of this, also you can refer books, internet etc for more information.

Past week I have updated my BIOS to install Windows Vista Premium operating system. Prior I had Windows Vista Home Basic installed in my Pc. I have successfully installed it and its working fine. I used the USB flash drive to perform upgradation of BIOS. The only minute trouble that I am facing is that bit of slow in performance and speed but it does not make any difference to me. All you can do is implement the idea for the same to upgrade your operating system to Windows Vista Business.

If you ask me then I would like to assure you that upgradating your current Windows Vista Home Premium operating system to Windows Vista Business operating system will slow your system performance. I reason I doubt is because after seeing the Configuration that you have mentioned in your question it seems that you configuration is old for Windows Vista Business. For best performance, Use Windows Xp operating system.
