Updating bios from flash drive Nude chat line numbers dating chat line numbers
Also, make sure to do the two updates immediately one after the other. In particular, avoid loading and doskey, as the presence of either program causes Phoenix bios flash tool phlash16to abort.
The EC firmware is usually much better at backwards compatibility than the BIOS. Change to the volume where flash2and other tools are installed, and execute "flash2/u".
You must read the Lenovo website and/or files to confirm which BIOS is compatible with which ECP, and the order in which to update them. Use F8 to abort the boot sequence of a windows 98 boot CD.
The Lenovo/IBM documentation is sometimes unclear about the order in which these two firmwares should be updated. IBM didn't provide specific instructions for your model or a particular firmware update), update the ECP first, and then the BIOS. If you need CD-ROM support, load CD-related things but say no to everything else.
EZ Flash will check the contents of the file to be sure it matches the current system.
Note: If your BIOS-Update tool says that no update is needed, then simply downgrade the Bios first: On Lenovo's drivers download page, the old Bios files are listed at the very bottom of the page. This requires that you have a DHCP and tftp server configured and setup properly on your network, and is probably not for the faint of heart.
A list of links to firmware downloads can be found at BIOS Upgrade Downloads for most Thinkpad models. Make sure the firmware bootdisk is in linux 'dd' format, as the self-extracting disks from the IBM website cannot be booted directly as such.
Booting from a Floppy is not recommended, so there are two best options to boot: CD drive or USB Flash drive. This can be done with the following The command adds the byte offset of the matching line plus the index for the start of the MSCF on that line, thus the byte offset of MSCF, this number is usually 4196 Now we need to cut these header bytes off, this is done by a standard dd cut, the following cuts away the first 4196 bytes. This method won't work for the Thinkpad 560X (and likely other older models).
Sparse instructions below provide you guidance how to do different parts of this pazzle but it's your duty to understand what to do and how to do that. A second alternative is to use Windows XP (works in Virtual Box too) together with Virtual Floppy Drive. Since the 560X is a bit older, it won't be a big surprise if the battery is as dead as a dodo. Boot the system with the W98 bootdisk, do not load CD-rom support.
