I need to upgrade my BIOS

  wobblymike 20:12 19 Sep 03

I have acquired a fairly old but well specc'd PC which at the moment does not have the ability to boot from CD although it has one fitted. I need to upgrade my BIOS (I think) the current BIOS is American Megatrends Version 1.12 - 51-3103-000901-00111111-101094-SIS550X-Z. Can anyone help me find the info I need to flash the BIOS.

Are you sure you can't alter the boot sequence?

Check in Advanced BIOS features There should be a list: First Boot Device, Second Boot Device and so on. Use the pointer arrows to move to First Boot Device and press enter. You should then be able to select whichever you want.

The detail of what I've said may be different but the idea will the same in yours.

Check in your motherboard manual.

Be aware that BIOS upgrades are not to undertaken lightly. You can easily destroy your machine if it goes wrong.
