Updating bios in windows xp
For this we need the installation file which contains the erd50file, Universal Extractor software to extract Binary.with which we extend the time limit, and some ISO recording software, to burn the modified erd50to a blank CD.
A few days ago there was an unfortunate occurrence that caused a problem which I have run out of ideas to attempt to solve. I was using Windows and it wanted to update but I was in the middle of something so I told it to wait.
Intel recommends that Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP users should use the Express utility and for all other OS'use 'iflash'. If someone is apparently having no problems with the current BIOS revision, then should he/she still update the BIOS if new version is available?
Most people think that only safe way to update the BIOS is to use the Boot Diskette method. Because failing to successfully update the BIOS may even render the motherboard completely useless.
I powered off by means of holding the power button.
Upon restarting the system into Windows, it performed the Second half of the update.
Firstly, there's a whole class of motherboards that use this chipset, and bios - unfortunately i cannot direct link - but go here and search for MQ96510J.86A, you will find the utility to update your bios from windows and alternate bios recovery utilities.
What I would do is remove the problematic drive and assuming you do not care about the content on it (let me know if you do), plug it in externally to another computer.
I intend to upgrade my bios for INTEL D845GRG motherboard using their Express BIOS update feature? Please advice."Will I have to reinstall Windows XP SP1 again? But can you tell what issue you are resolving with this BIOS?
There's a bit of a lack of research here, and a certain lack of information - since i managed to google up an answer within a few minutes, but some specifics are lacking.
I thought maybe the update messed with my other partitions so I re-installed Arch (which is my boot partition). In case there was something wrong with the partition table I deleted and recreated the partition table, and installed Arch. After this I thought the problem was most likely the BIOS. What is my next step, or have I damaged my computer irreparably?
I went into setup and told it to restore default settings. I powered off, removed the power cord and battery, hit the power button, removed the hard drive, replaced the power cord and battery, powered on. I powered off, replaced the hard drive and powered on. Edit: Forgot to mention, I used gparted through a linux live usb to do partition editing, and forgot to explicitly state that only my BIOS has any trouble reading the hard drive Update: I borrowed a friend's hard drive to test in the computer just to make absolutely sure it wasn't the hard drive, and his hard drive booted.
