Re:Firmware Updates

Posted by: Administrator on January 09, 2007 12:39 AM
I purchased my media center machine a year-and-a-half ago. In that time there have been at least three updates to the system BIOS (an Asus MB), two to the Philips DVD-ROM and one to the HP DVD-RW. At least one of the updates to the Philips was critical to its proper function. All the updates required Windows to be applied. I have personally applied similar updates to Dells and have been aware of updates for other brands, as well.

While I compliment the folks at FreeDOS for their accomplishment, I doubt many would want to risk turning their machines to scrap using it for a firmware update.
