Fujitsu-Siemens Scaleo L - 2600 celeron
have down loaded the updated BIOS and followed instructions to the letter - but the only A:\ drive is a USB floppy that will not power on before the windows spalsh screen - so as the program for BIOS is not flexible in where to boot from it is impossible to follow their instructions - thier web site also doesnt seem to have the problem listed --
any advice?

any links?

Some manufacturers have Bios upgrade that can be flashed from within windows. Look for windows flash prog on the site.

Or could you burn the BIOS prog to a cd and boot from that?

The advice as always is to only ever update the BIOS if you absolutely have to.

no - it is fixed as a:\ drive in the bios update program and is not changable

Asus PG4V-FSC 1004 (2003)
pdf on the motherboard is availablee from their site but chapter 2 on BIOS which i have followed gets me to where it wants an a/: drive for the file to be found
My USB floppy is A/: but only after windows has started
I have been into Bios and altered all USB and Boot sequence setting to no avail ;)
