'format A: /s' command does not work in 2000 or NT, only in 98, 95 or ME.


: As additional info for my post, I should add...

: The boot disk I used to attempt to flash the bios contained the flash utility and the updated BIOS file, and not the transferred system files.

: When I typed 'format A: /s' in DOS to attempt to format the floppy and transfer the system files, I received the message '/s' invalid parameter. Reading an earlier post by Henry indicates those files *have* to be there.

: Any ideas on how to get the necessary system files onto the floppy are appreciated.

: Thanks,

: You MUST flash from a clean boot disk - that is, one with the two hidden files (IO.SYS and MSDOS.SYS),, the flash program and the new BIOS update

: : When I go into DOS and attempt to flash my bios (Award v.4.51 PGM Gigabyte mobo GA-6BXD) I get this error message:

: : Fail due to Emm 386 or Qemm

: : Does anyone know what this means and how I get around it? I need to update my bios so I can install a 40gb HD.

: : Thanks,
