: i need to update my Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A08 to a later version .. do u know where can i do that !
: btw i need to upgrade it to install windows XP as it keeps tellin me that i need to upgrade my bios inorder to install windows XP


Phoenix BIOS is difficult; the BIOS ID string is useless for mainboard ID. You should look for a BIOS update at your mainboard maker's web site. If none there, Phoenix may be able to help, BUT you must know your mainboard maker, model number and hardware revision. If you need to identify your mainboard just follow the motherboard ID article at:

If you want to get a BIOS update from Phoenix or a custom (expensive) BIOS from Unicore (http://www.unicore.com) you will need to know EXACTLY what update features winXP wants - otherwise you will be running in circles trying to find something that works. Suggest that you check microsoft - seems like they have a win2k BIOS readiness test - maybe one for XP as well.

Good Hunting,
Henry
