I haven’t looked at the BIOS on my ageing ASUS A8N-SLI motherboard for ages – in fact not since I switched it fully to Linux – so how do you update the Phoenix BIOS without DOS or Windows? I don’t bother with a floppy disk any more and creating a DOS boot CD just for this once every x years job is a faff!
Well there is an [article here] that might help.
Hmm, apparently that article doesn’t really help – except that it tells you ways to create custom bootable CD’s containing DOS, the BIOS updater and the BIOS file. Ho hum, I guess I’ll get round to it soon as I am looking to put a dual core Athlon in the PC which requires a new BIOS. : http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-flash-your-system-bios-under-linux.html
