Post need to make a bootable CD with the bios files on it.

The BIOS you were looking for is "HP Brio BA600, BAx, Vectra VEi8 (MiTAC 6110ZU/VA)" at http://wims.rainbow-software.org/nic...06110ZU_VA.zip

Could somebody tell me how to make a bootable cd with this bios file ? also I have downloaded uniflash and I have everything on my flash drive. I can't use my floppy drive right now but it is rejecting every old floppy disk I give it. and I don't have a new one I can use at the moment. also I need to flash this bios now because my mobo won't take any HDD above 33gigs, right now I have 1. 80gig old 2. new 40gig. I would appreciate any help I could get.

io.sys
msdos.sys
command.com

these are the required files to boot to dos. try burning them with the bios files and boot to it.

can you find the file using the dir command?

maybe use attrib to remove hidden or system file attributes

or more likely the file should be placed in a specified directory. lookup the instructions for the flash file.

Yes I finally got it to boot off the cd and it flashed correctly however it said there were no updates available. so I am going to try nicks semmen bios patch that he made and see what will happen. also he's from the wims board. if I get to flash correctly with that patch and I can use both my HDD"S I'll post back the good news before 1:00am and then I'm going to sleep.
