Upgrading to the Latest BIOS 
----------------------------- 
 
 
1.  Enter BIOS SETUP by pressing F2 repeatedly after booting the 
       system. 
2.  Write down all settings that are unique to the system. These 
       settings will be needed later to reconfigure the system. 
       Additionally you can highlight the exit menu and choose the 
       'Save Custom Defaults' tab.  Choosing 'Yes' will cause  
       the current BIOS settings to be saved as a custom default 
       setting.  When the CMOS memory is cleared during the BIOS 
       Update, BIOS reads the custom defaults.  If the custom 
       defaults are not saved, the BIOS will read the factory 
       defaults.  Press ESC to exit BIOS. 
3.  After booting the operating system, be sure to verify that you 
       have downloaded the correct BIOS. 
4.  Double click the Run.bat program.  Place a blank floppy in drive 
       a: when instructed.  The Run.bat program will automatically 
       format and create a bootable floppy and copy the BIOS files 
       onto the floppy. 
 
IMPORTANT Microsoft* WINDOWS* 98 SE users.  After creating the diskette 
you will initially not be able to view the contents of the diskette 
through Windows* Explorer or through the A: drive on the desktop.  
To view the contents you will have to eject the diskette and reinsert.  
Only then will the BIOS files be accessible through Windows* Explorer 
or through the A: drive on the desktop. 
 
5.  Place the bootable floppy containing the new BIOS into drive 
       a: of the system to be upgraded and boot the system. 
6.  During the BIOS update, you will be given one opportunity to 
       cancel the BIOS update without any changes occurring to 
       your system.  To do this, simply press CTRL+Break when prompted. 
       IMPORTANT! 
       Do not press CTRL+Break or power down your system at any other 
       time during the BIOS update, this could permanently damage 
       your system. 
7.  When prompted that the BIOS Update is complete, remove the 
       floppy and reboot the system. 
8.  Press F2 repeatedly during post to enter BIOS SETUP.  On the first screen 
       within SETUP, check the BIOS version to ensure that it is 
       the new version. 
9.  If you saved the settings as custom defaults, those settings 
       will automatically appear now.  If the system has unique settings that 
       you did not save by choosing 'Save Custom Defaults, re-enter 
       those settings now. Press F10 to save the values and exit  
       Setup.
