Be very careful, this is very risky! If you don't know what you're doing, stop right now!

Wait for advice!

you will need to create a boot floppy first and then put bios update files onto it or a second floppy. pc cannot boot froma disk with just bios update file on it. you will also need a bios update utility such as awflash. usually avilable from where you got the bios update from

You need a bootable floppy, such as one from

Then when started, follow your instructions for the BIOS Flash.
