I have never updated a BIOS before.
I have a K7S5A BIOS and am currently using Windows 98.
I am trying to upgrade to Windoes XP, using the stand alone version, booting from CDROM. The files have copied, but when I try to run the copied files for the first time to set up XP it fails, and gives a boot error.

I am asuming that if I update the BIOS that will solve my problems., Do you think I am correct?

The details on startup are:
American Megatrends AMIBIOS
K7s5A release 04/29/2002 S

Can anyone please offer me any advice.


Andrew Curry.
