BIOS Flash Utility

The BIOS flash memory update is required for the following conditions:

  • New versions of system programs
  • New features or options
  • Restore a BIOS when it becomes corrupted. Use the Flash utility to update the system BIOS flash ROM.

NOTE: Do not install memory-related drivers (XMS, EMS, DPMI) when you use the Flash utilities.
