Installation Instructions for
Micro Firmware BIOS Upgrade Updates
==============================================

NOTE: Use of these files is governed by the License Agreement
contained in the file LICENSE.TXT, included with this
distribution.  

This BIOS Update file will update prior revisions of Micro Firmware's
M4GS25 BIOS Upgrade to M4GS25 version 4.03.6.19.

In order to install this update, the M4GS25 BIOS must
already be resident on your PC.  You can confirm this by booting your PC
and watching for the Micro Firmware BIOS part number which will appear
on the boot screen.  DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL THIS UPDATE IF
YOU DO NOT SEE THE "M4GS25" PART NUMBER ON THE BOOT SCREEN.

We also recommend that you obtain a copy of the latest system-
specific supplemental manual, which is available on our Web site
in Adobe Acrobat PDF format.  You can use Acrobat reader 3.0 or
later to view and print this document.  The address is:

(The system font used on the sample screens may not be very clear when
viewed full-screen.  We highly recommend printing this document on
a laser printer, or zoom in on the image when viewing on screen.)


BEFORE INSTALLATION
===================

Run Setup, and make a note of your existing configuration.  Pay
particular attention to hard drive settings and the settings for
the onboard serial and parallel ports.  Most settings are retained,
but checking your existing configuration is a good precaution in the
unlikely event that the Flash installation is interrupted for any
reason.

Be sure that your data is backed up.  This is a normal, everyday rule
of thumb that everyone should adhere to.  Installing the new BIOS revision
in and of itself will not affect the data on your hard drive(s) - however,
it is especially important to have a back up of any valuable data any
time you make any changes to your PC configuration.

You will need to have two blank or spare diskettes that will work in your A:
(first) floppy drive.  One diskette will be used to make a bootable floppy
disk, the other diskette will be used to make a "recovery" disk containing
the existing BIOS revision.  The recovery disk must be the appropriate
high-density type for the A: drive.  It may be wither a 5.25-inch or a
3.5-inch disk.  Most systems are configured with a 3.5-inch drive as the
A: drive.

Make a bootable floppy disk by insterting a new diskette in your A: drive,
and entering the command:

   FORMAT A: /S

(Windows 95 users should first bring up an MS-DOS window by selecting START,
then PROGRAMS, then MS-DOS PROMPT.)

Once the disk is formatted, copy the files from this distribution
to the newly-created boot disk.  You are now ready to install the BIOS
update.


INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
=========================

1. Insert the Micro Firmware/PhoenixBIOS Installation Diskette in the A:
   or B: drive.  Your default drive should already be the A: drive,
   assuming you just booted from the A: drive as described above.
   If the installation disk is in the B: drive, switch to the B: drive by
   typing B: [ENTER].


2. Type INSTALL [ENTER] to run the Flash BIOS installation program.

3. The first thing the Installation program will do is examine your system
   to determine the current system settings.  This allows the installation
   program to preserve many system setup options under the new BIOS.
   This will take a few moments.

4. Then the installation program will load the BIOS image from disk into
   RAM.  A window will appear showing the progress.  This should take just
   a few seconds.

5. Next, the installation program will prompt you to enter a blank or unused
   high-density diskette in the A: drive to create the recovery disk.  The
   disk will need to be formatted, and any data on the disk will be
   overwritten.

  NOTE: Be sure to keep the original recovery disk that was made when
        you first upgraded from the original manufacturer's BIOS.  Use
        a new diskette when making the recovery disk for this
        installation.  Do not reuse or otherwise write-over your
        original recovery disk.

6. Press [ENTER] once the blank diskette for the recovery disk has been
   installed.  The original BIOS image will then be written to the diskette.
   During this process, the disk tracks are reformatted and double verified.
   If the Installation program detects any errors, it will prompt you to
   start over with a new diskette.

7. Once completed, the Installation program will prompt you to remove the
   recovery disk.  Label the recovery disk, then store it in a safe place.

  *** ENSURE THAT THE RECOVERY DISK HAS BEEN
        REMOVED FROM THE DISK DRIVE BEFORE PROCEEDING ***

8. When you press a key to continue, the Flash ROM will be reprogrammed
   with the new BIOS.  Once the programming is complete, the system will
   reboot with your new BIOS installed.

9. You may want to run Setup and confirm your settings.  You may also want
   to autoconfigure your hard drives again so that settings such as LBA mode
   and multi-sector transfers will be reset to their proper settings.  Refer
   to the system-specific supplementalmanual for more details.
