Dont think you can do that..can you?

Can't you just install a floppy for the time being? Would make life alot easier..

Go to the manufactures website for your laptop and go to where you would get the bios. See if they talk about this at all. I know a lot of new bios now can be run straight from windows xp using a program like WinFlash. For my DFI motherboard I just did that the other day and it worked perfectly.

Yep I know it works good from experience. I'm not sure though if you have to have special bios or anything. I might suggest searching google for winflash and see what you can find about it. Your laptop manufacture might even recommend it.
