Question about Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop
I want to copy my current BIOS from my Dell Dimension 8400 Desktop, running XP Pro. I have added another HD to the computer, more memory, etc, so my BIOS has been updated to account for that.
In the event the BIOS becomes corrupted, I want to be able to use that disk containing my current BIOS with an appropriate program to transfer the saved BIOS to my computer and make it operational again.
I am not familiar with DOS, though with good instructions, I can manage to use fairly simple programs. Can you assist me?
I've done over 100 bios upgrades / flashes / etc and not once have I ever had any need to restore a backed up bios.
Here's what I found on the net
Hope this helps, it's not a solution per say but honestly it's probably overkill backing up that bios file FYI.
Best of luck!
