When downloading the BIOS update, it tells you to save it to the system first. Since I am can't get the laptop on line yet, is there a problem with saving it to a CD on a different PC, then copy to the laptop?
OH NOOOO!!!! This isn't happening. I saved the updates including the BIOS on another PC. I just put in a CDR to copy the files to, then take the files to the laptop to execute them and found that the CDR is configured evidently to only play audio. It keeps saying to insert a CD and it is there. I tried several other CD's and it is not reading them. I put an audio CD in and it plays.
I am wondering, this PC was one I received from work when we upgraded our systems, and was used in a network environment. Although we have the CDROM, the permission levels restricts the users from downloading from the internet and/or installing applications. Is there some type of configuration or permission level that it is still seeing that is preventing the use of writing to a CD?
