Updating bios through cd
However, most computers made in the past four years boot Windows 10 too quickly to listen for a key press at startup. To access your BIOS on a Windows 10 PC, you must follow these steps. It felt like you were going to snap the motherboard fibreglass!Today BIOS Flash Update Tools are provided by many of the PC Vendors such as HP and Dell.These tools also backup the current BIOS version in case you need to revert back.For Organisations with lots of computers to maintain there are programs that will scan you network and report back on the BIOS versions and whether they are out of date or not.I update the American Megatrends BIOS using the following method:1. ROM File from the AMI web Site or my Computer providers web site.2. Ensure CD-ROM Support is enabled so you can get to the D:\ Drive or whatever the CD-ROM drive letter is assigned to your computer.5.

It will run it's own script to automatically install all the firmware updates. Review the summary and the location the ISO will be output to. Again this bit also took 2 attempts for me before it produced the ISO, not sure why I just put it down to a crap tool! Whilst the information provided is correct to the best of my knowledge, I am not reponsible for any issues that may arise using this information, and you do so at your own risk.
I thought this would be pretty straightforward, oh how I was wrong! Select "Deployment Media (Using Linux Bundle) Note: This is important to get our bootable ISO. You will then get an error message "The required plugin was not found". As always before performing anything; check, double check, test and always ensure you have a backup.
