WARNING: Flashing motherboard BIOS is a dangerous activity that can render your motherboard inoperable!The correct sequence to be used to power-on/power-off the Braswell processor is the one described in the page of this documentation Braswell Power Management from Arduino 101.Please be aware that using Windows programmer, it must be run in a cmd shell with Administrator privileges.[img_assist|nid=859|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=180|height=155]You've finally made the move to a Windows-free computer, you're enjoying your brand new Linux OS, no trojans/viruses, no slowdown, everything's perfect. Step 1: Download Free DOS boot disk floppy image Free DOS, a free DOS-compatible operating system, is up to the challenge, no need for proprietary DOS versions.Suddenly, you need to update the BIOS on your motherboard to support some new piece of hardware, but typically the motherboard vendor is offering only DOS based BIOS flash utilities. So, all you need is a bootable floppy disk image with Free DOS kernel on it.I dont know anyone with Windows anymore and if I asked I might get spit at. Any idiots care to take me up on that offer possibly? All hardware in your virtual machine, including BIOS, is virtualized. Thank you, Admin, for spending your time to write something that helps people even when they are ungrateful.

Either way, there just isn't a way of upgrading bios without at least some kind of dos, whether it's M$ or some free version... Tell me, would people in my situation search Google for "freedos flash bios" or "linux flash bios floppy" instead?If you're making a CD ISO and have no need to "limit yourself" to the standard formatted floppy size of 1.44Mb, you'll have room for bigger files and/or more tools if you use the 2.88 version of FDOEM: FDSTD.288"standard" image has a bunch of irrelevant (for THIS purpose) utilities, and IMPORTANT!
