    Question Via Epia SP - upgrade bios - how?!

    Hi!

    Via Epia SP has no connector for floppy. But on http://www.viaembedded.com there is only awdflash utility supported by DOS based opeartion systems (no support for W2k, XP...). So, how to upgrade it?

    Thanks for advice!

    Google bootdisk.

    You should quickly find a few ways to make a bootable CDROM with your BIOS update on it...

    Any USB floppy drive will do fine. Just make sure your BIOS can boot from a USB device (most modern ones can). I did this and it worked fine.

    Make a bootable CD...
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
