Tried to update this older BIOS i my Fujitsu Siemens computer (Award 4.51PG, 01-01-00) to a newer one, but then I could no longer use my Win98SE Recovery-CD to reinstall the operating system (which was necessary then). Obviously, the installation program on the CD 'reads' the BIOS in oreder to determine if it is a 'valid' computer, but denies installation if the BIOS version is changed/updated. The computer, including the bundled OS and the CD, ware legally bought from a dealer here in Sweden for several years ago.

Siemens Fujitsu model: Scaleo P80-51
Chipset: VIA 82C691 rev.68
MBoard: Biostar M6VCG
CPU: Intel Pentium III 800MHz

Fortunatelly, I could reinstall the old BIOS and make it work again, but I wonder what featurs and improvments I miss by not being able to update. Appreciate any advise.
