How to Flash a System Bios using a diskette or a CD


Not all PC models have the option of flashing the bios under the windows Graphical User Interface (GUI) environment. There are some that their manufacturers only give diskette option which will involve using the DOS (Disk Operating System) environment. Recently, the CD drive is also given as an alternative since most PCs now do not have diskette drives. Well in both cases, it will involve creating a bootable diskette or CD. Here's how to go about it:

First, you would have to visit the manufacturer's website and carefully check and download the latest driver files for your system model. Also, you would have to save the instructions for reference when necessary. If you are downloading for a diskette, you would have to download the driver files for diskette (they are smaller than that of the CD). Now, the next thing is to create a bootable diskette so you can copy the downloaded files to the diskette. The easiest way of creating an MS-DOS bootable diskette is by visiting www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm, download an image (you can select 'Windows ME, Custom, No Ramdrive'), and follow the instructions to create your own bootable diskette. If the bios files you downloaded are zipped, you would have to unzip first so you can have access to the actual files and copy them to the bootable diskette. If you are downloading for CD, then you would have to select the one for CD if available. Normally, with the CD, an application is added to automatically burn the bootable CD. You would have to be sure your CD drive is a burner or writer. Take note of your drive letter (whether E:, F:, A: etc). Now you are ready to lunch.

If you are using a laptop, be sure to have your battery and adapter connected and if it is a desktop, then be sure to have a backup power like a UPS. Restart your PC and be sure to set your PC to boot from Floppy or CD depending on which one you are using. Now the PC will boot into a DOS environment. If the main application does not lunch automatically, you would have to lunch it yourself. In this case, you will see a drive letter and a blinking cursor. If the letter showing is not that of your drive, then you would have to enter your drive. This is an example of what to type if say we want to enter drive 'E';
c:\>e: (then hit the enter key)
e:\>
In this case, we were in drive C: and we moved from C: to E: by typing 'e:'. From the instructions, you will know the main file to lunch. This is an example of lunching a file with the name 'bios.exe' in drive 'A';
a:\>bios.exe (then hit the enter key)
In this case, we were using drive 'A'(normally the case with diskette). If it were to be drive 'E', it would have been;
e:\>bios.exe (then hit the enter key)
When this is done, you follow the instructions step by step to successfully complete the procedure. When done, you can check your bios settings if necessary.

Hope this was helpful and all the best.

System32\config\system is corrupted. I want to boot from a flash drive. How it is made, the flash drive?


I recommend you to boot from a Windows CD and use the 'repair' option.
Anyways, Flash Drive is a Universal Serial Bus - Mass Storage Device (USB Memory Storage Device) also known as Pen Drive in common.

  • To install/Repair OS using a Flash Drive, you need to follow these steps

Make your flash drive bootable using Bart's mkbt util:
http://www.nu2.nu/mkbt/ ' Alt: mkbt20.zip

  1. Put a bootable floppy disk in your A: drive or create one using Windows.
  2. Download mkbt20.zip and unpack to to new temp folder you create.
  3. Go to the temp folder.
  4. Extract the bootsector from the bootable floppy disk. eg Open a DOS Window and go to the directory where you extracted MKBT. Type:  mkbt -c a: bootsect.bin
  5. The boot sectors from the bootable floppy disk have just been saved to a file in the temp folder you created.
  6. Format the flash drive in FAT or FAT16.
  7. Copy the bootsector to the flash drive. Open a DOS Window and go to the folder where you extracted MKBT. Type:  mkbt -x bootsect.bin Z:
"Z" represents the flash drive drive Letter. So if your flash drive has another drive letter, then change the "Z" accordingly.

Now you should be able to copy the utilities you need to the pen drive.

If you need more Methods/Options, you can check BootDisk

Than you in advance for any and all help pertaing to my issue. Problem: 3-4yr old HP laptop. Did have Win XPsp2 on it. HDD went bad. Used Barts PE to create bootable cd-rom with half working Win XP, but...


Why do it the hard way? If your HDD is bad, most probably the system files are corrupted too and getting/making a bootable CD from the HDD files is just wasting your effort. If you laptop CD/DVD drive is still good, then use the options below: -

1. Go to any torrents site download "hp oem xp" disc from the site & burn the bootable image to a CDR.

2. Go the the Hp support Site & download the XP drivers for your Laptop model.

3. Then you can do a new installations on your Laptop.

Hope it helps.
