Updating bios no floppy

rpm, stty, gzip, among others) despite gzip being confirmed installed. BIN file and this caused the server to start to reboot and then hang, which after a hard shutdown, and booting into the Lifecycle Controller the firmware was not upgraded. Note that Free DOS doesn't provide an 'empty' 2.88MB boot disk so we need to delete the "fdos" utility folder to get space. One way of getting phlash16has been described previously.We'll need to obtain a Free DOS disk image and mount it: (probably different for everyone), you hit Ctrl-C a moment too late. The relevant directions from there are reproduced in what follows.Tonight while building a new workstation, I needed to update the BIOS on the motherboard, a Tyan Tomcat K8E.Tyan, however, offers only floppy-based BIOS flashing software to do the job.The one you want is the 2.88-MB ODIN image because it has about 1.5 MB of free space, enough to hold the contents of the BIOS flasher’s floppy.Second, mount the floppy image so that you can edit it: Finally, reboot your PC using the CD-ROM and flash away!

well installing flashrom (on ubuntu linux) is pretty unproblematic: flashrom v0.9.3-r1211 on Linux 2.6.35-22-generic (i686), built with libpci 3.1.7, GCC 4.4.5, little endian flashrom is free software, get the source code at delay loop...
