well, ill let it run for another hour, see what happens.
ill go end it through the task manager and/or restart if i need to... maybe ill get lucky and it didnt even access the bios or something...
thanks for the help... =/
Update: Looks like it actually updated the bios fine... I ended the installer through the task manager, and restarted. When it booted it showed the new version of the bios (3.15), and proceeded to boot windows. It did have an NTLRD(sp?) not found error, but that is fixed and everything is running fine now. Guess I got lucky
