When you visit a vendor's Web site (either the PC mfgr or the BIOS maker) and discover a new BIOS with features you want, or upgrades require a new BIOS, it's time to put all the ingredients together, make a backup of the current BIOS, and then flash the EEPROM where the BIOS resides with the new version.

Afterward, a little clean-up is also usually required. Problems or failures during the BIOS flashing process can do serious harm to a PC.

Don't flash unless you really must, and never flash without making a backup and rounding up necessary repair tools.

You'll also need a USB Flash Drive (UFD) formatting tool that can create a bootable DOS image on that drive.

This requires a special formatting tool, and DOS source files to make the drive bootable.

For this task, your best bet is a tool called the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool, V2.1.8.

It not only formats UFDs to FAT or FAT32, it can also copy DOS boot files from any target directory you supply to this tool.

With a little luck, your BIOS System information will look like this screenshot, and reflect your successful addition of a new version to your PC.

The best place to get a BIOS update is from your PC manufacturer's Web site, on the downloads page for your notebook or desktop PC, if you purchased a complete system, or for your motherboard if you built your own system (or purchased a "white box" PC from somebody else who builds them from stock parts).
