Bios update help K8T Neo-V

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
First off Intel guy here but before you stop reading at that comment, here are the specs.

AMD 3000+ CPU (2GHz I believe)
MSI MS 7032 V1 K8T Neo-V Mobo
Geforce 7800 series GPU
OCZ 700w psu

So my friend dropped off this older (2005ish pc). I offered to help him fix it. Turned out it was just a dead IDE hard drive, which I easily replaced and installed windows xp for him.

The problem now is I need to update the bios(the pc is not recognizing most usb devices) Bios is currently version 3.34a or something to 5.0 so it can automatically update via MSI live update 5. I normally would just download to USB and flash it, however this thing does not even have that option (which I don't understand, this is MSI and in 2005 none the less). Anyways this thing wants me to do a manual update with a floppy or something. I have no access to a floppy drive. I was wondering if I should burn the bios to a CD and give that a shot, however I would not know how to go about that according to their strange manual install instructions.

Bios is here

Would really appreciate any help, I am stumped and tired of messing with this thing for over 7 hours now.

Don t worry!

Go here http://forum-en.msi.com/ and ask for help to update the BIOS.
There is a tool for download there ,that might help you to update safe and properly via USB stick if USB is bootable on that mobo.

If you update via floppy keep in mind you need a FAT partition on a HDD.
Practically on the floppy you have ONLY the MS DOS environment from which you boot.
Then you run commands that use the BIOS file and flash.exe file from the FAT partition.The FAT partition needs to be called C:\.
It s very simple command like it is stated in the MSI BIOS archive guide.

Just visit the msi forum those guys will help you.
