: I'm trying to upgrade my BIOS on my Abit BH6. I downloaded the AWDFLASH.exe, and the associated BAT file, and the new BIOS (bh6ss.exe) from the abit site, but the directions they give to install are a little vague, can someone tell me what files I need on the floopy, and a good procedure.

you will need only 3 things to upgrade your bios

1 bootable floppy (preferably DOS 6.22)
2 flash utility
3 bios file

you can create bootable floppy by formating the fresh floppy disk with /s option

then copy aflash utility on it

get latest copy od bios from corrusponding motherboard manufacturer's web site
normally extention .bin or .rom
(this site can help you in finding bios file for your mbd www.ping.be/bios)

now boot with floppy and run flash utility

it will ask for name and path for new bios file
prode it and get your bios upgraded

be careful do not power off or reset machine when flash utility updating your bios

try to backup your bios before updating it

that could be useful if new bios is not working properly
