Re: Command prompt for flashing a bios
1. Get an external USB floppy drive. Yes, a floppy drive is still
necessary in this day and age.
2. Ask Adaptec how to create the disk that you need to flash "their"
bios. See if they have a utility that does this. Ask them what files must be
included on the floppy etc.
