Micronics Computers, Inc. 1/24/96 GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR UPDATING FLASH BIOS ============================================ Follow these instructions when FLASHing a Micronics motherboard BIOS to avoid any problems and ensure a smooth process: 1) After downloading the approprate BIOS file from our BBS, extract it to a bootable MS-DOS 6.X diskette. 2) Reboot the system with that diskette in the A: drive. To make sure a clean DOS environment is loaded, strike the [F5] key while "Starting MS-DOS" is displayed. This will leave you at the A:> prompt. 3) The FLASH utility must now be executed. Its' filename will be either "FSH" (or FSH20, FSH20G,etc.) or "PHLASH". Type this filename at the A:> prompt (but don't include it's extension), followed by a space and the BIOS ROM image's filename. This will be the one file included in the download that has a file length of about 131K. For example, to update the M54Hi to BIOS version 05, you would type: PHLASH M54HI.05P [ENTER]. 4) Once the FLASH process has begun, select [Y]es, if prompted, to allow auto-sensing of the part (the FLASH chip itself). 5) After the update process has completed and the system reboots, verify that the new BIOS version appears on-screen. If any problems are experienced during this process, or if you have any questions about the procedure, please call our Technical Support Department at (510) 661-3000. >>If the BIOS somehow gets erased or doesn't seem to accept the upgrade, it is possible to have your original BIOS chip reprogrammed manually by Technical Support. There is a $29.95 fee for this service (which includes shipping charges back to the customer). Also, a pre-programmed FLASH BIOS chip can be purchased from Technical Support for $50.00. Overnight shipping costs an additional $10.00. (Price and availability subject to change.)<<Download Driver Pack
