This package updates the basic input-output system (BIOS) on select Aptiva 2194 and 2197 systems, select NetVista 2194 and 2197 systems, and IBM PC300 (Type 6344) systems. These systems all use the SiS 630 chipset.

BIOS is programming that controls low-level hardware operations, including interactions with diskette drives, hard disk 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.

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.

Print this file so that you can refer to it during the installation.
