How do I upgrade my flash bios?
Posted on 1998-09-09
I have a 1993 model Gateway computer. It is a 486-33DX with a Phoenix 80486 Rom Bios Plus Version 0.10 GJX30G-04P on an Intel 09-00189 motherboard. I want to upgrade my flash bios to support Logical Block Address. Gateway's web site includes a bios update section including downloadable software to do just that. I downloaded file JX3012 and rebooted with the files. It DID update my bios, however it didn't enable support for my WD 4.0 gig hard drive. A company called Micro Firmware says their Bios software will do the job for $59. I don't want to pay this. Is there somewhere else I can get bios upgrade software for free?
