This package updates the basic input/output system (BIOS) on PC 300GL (type 6267, 6277, 6287) systems.
BIOS is programming that controls low-level hardware operations, including interactions with diskette drives, hard drives, and the keyboard. The BIOS is stored on a chip. Your computer uses flash BIOS, which can be updated through a program on a flash diskette so that you do not have to replace the BIOS chip to update the BIOS.
Note: Make note of any settings you have changed in the BIOS Configuration Utility. These settings may have to be re-entered after updating the BIOS.
Please refer to the readme file for details on fixes incorporated in this BIOS update. This is a flash BIOS update. The .exe file should be saved to your hard disk and executed. It will prompt you for a diskette. Follow the on-screen instructions and extract the files, creating a bootable diskette.
The following file(s) have been provided in diskette image format.
Download the executable file(s) from this document to a subdirectory on your system (e.g. C:\TEMP) by double clicking on the file(s).
Insert a blank, formatted diskette and execute the downloaded file with the diskette drive letter as the argument (e.g. driver.exe a:). The system will prompt you for a formatted diskette and will extract the diskette images to the diskettes. Repeat for each downloaded file.
Follow the instructions in the readme file provided with the driver for installation.
Write-protect this diskette immediately. Otherwise, Windows 95, 98, or NT may render the diskette unusable.
Shut down and power off the machine and then re-boot with the flash diskette in the A: drive to update the flash BIOS.
