Default Installing bios...

I recently bought a new pc and it didn't come with an operating system so I installed XP and it works fine but I don't have a bios at boot up so I need to install it, I found the bios file for my motherboard but I don't have a floppy drive how can i do this without a floppy disc?

What the crap? You don't have Bios? I've never heard of such a thing. All motherboards are preinstaled with Bios. Bios isn't something you can just "install".

.... how did you install windows without bios? Man I'm confused LOL

Try this:

ASRock G31M-GS Bios v 1.20 for Windows - TechSpot Drivers

See if that's what you're looking for.
