But then wouldn't it load into Windows 98?

Why would it load into Windows 98? =/ You just need to be able to boot into the command prompt so you can flash the bios.

Thanks for the help man, I'll try it out when I get home!

Have only the required boot files on one floppy disc and the BIOS file and flash application on another disc. Insert first floppy disk to boot from it and then once you are at A:\ prompt, remove the first floppy, insert the floppy with the BIOS file and BIOS flash application, and then run the BIOS flashing application. This is how I did it with my Abit IP35 Pro when I needed to update the BIOS because all the files required were larger than 1.44MB.

THAT is what I am looking for. Thanks dude, I'll let you know how it goes.

What happened? Did you set the USB floppy as the primary boot device?

Make sure you format the first floppy as a MS-DOS boot disc from windows. Then put the BIOS stuff on the second floppy and try again.

Btw, the only difference is that I had a real floppy drive and not a USB floppy drive. I've never used a USB floppy drive but if you set it as the primary boot device it should work.

Can't enter the BIOS on the broken computer at all, it is corrupt. Therefore, no setting a primary boot drive frown.gif.

Nope frown.gif. What I don't get is how the hell everyone else is able to put these files on one floppy and I am not. Am I missing something?

The MS-DOS boot files will fit on one floppy. How large are your flash program and BIOS files?
