    How would i go about updating my Bios i have VIA Apollo Pro chipset which is not the worlds best but there have been some improvements via bios flashing, so how i would i go about getting a true dos boot to do this with just XP pro installed on my system?

    Cheers

    Sometimes it's not Necessary, you can now flash your bios from windows. For an example, Asus have live update on there website which automatically downloads the latest bios for your board, flashes your bios and then reboots.

    I have used it before and it works.

    Since this is probably not the case, just go to My Computer, rightclick of the A-drive, and choose format.... Check the Make an MS-DOS bootdiskette > Start. That should do it.

    Since his BIOS probably isn't NTFS (I'll eat my hat if it is), that shouldn't be a problem.
