Updating bios without floppy drive
func=downloaddetail&type=bios&maincat_no=1&prod_no=587Does anyone know what I can do?
Also when I start up the MSIHQ program and select the BIOS zip it says:' WMIC' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

However I've heard some say this doesn't matter and I can install the new BIOS from the hard drive.
My motherboard: MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum The Bios (top one):
The really old way of doing this using a floppy disk.
This really is not an option, but writing a CD or a USB stick can be as much hassle.
Hi I wish to update my BIOS so I can use my new dual core cpu but it seems incredibly complicated.
Like the title says, I don't have a floppy drive.
Hi Wayne Maxdata my PC supplier said I needed to update my BIOS before I could install my new CPU and I did try to install CPU without it and when PC restarted it went into a loop checking CD drive and floppy drive (which I dont have) to find file A8VNMMAX. The MAX bit I assume has something to do with the fact my PC is a MAXData?
Once it has booted (you can press F5 to bypass executing autoexec.bat) simply run the program as instructed by the motherboar website: Quite a lot of BIOSes these days support flashing from a USB stick within the BIOS, so all you need to do is put the BIOS file on the USB stick, boot to the BIOS, and go through the update section – it’ll find the file on the USB stick and do the update. As did the option to only enable some of the cores with the default being set at 3.
That confused me a little when rebooting and finding one of the processors missing. I wanted to flash my graphic’s card BIOS today, which has to be done using “nvflash” under DOS.
If no Windows BIOS utility is available, create a bootable CD and copy the BIOS flash utility files to the CD.
Then restart your computer and boot to the CD to run the BIOS flash utility.
