How do you update the bios? I've got Version F.17 and HP shows a
version F.19 on their site-- the problem is that all they provide is an
exe file that needs to be run under winXP-- after wrestling dual boot
issues for a few days I decided it wasn't worth the hastle and the
wasted partition. Anyone have suggestions on how to do this?
back in the days of win9x I could do all this stuff jsut fine-- but I've
been able to avoid any serious work in the windows world for 5+ years
[it's been kind of nice actually]. But anyways-- in win9x-- I would
have made a basic boot floppy or something like that to get a command
prompt and just run the exe from there--
now-- I'm not sure where to begin-- I've got a winXP distro disk-- but
that doesn't want to give me a command prompt [does it?] It just wants
to install the whole mess. Is there a light weight version of XP like a
bootable cd-rom that could load up and let me run this?
