I have a IBM P100 (6577-59T) that I downloaded the latest bios flash update and can't get it to load. The directions say to boot up with floppy in drive, but when I do that I get a system disk error? push any key. It will not get passed this. Any ideas on how to get this to load? Keep in mind I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to computers. So keep it simple for me. Thanks Steve W

Let me guess you just downloaded a file, and copied it to a floppy? Thats not quite the correct way.


1. Download the file (i guess you have grabbed ( ftp://ftp.pc.ibm.com/pub/pccbbs/commercial_desktop/lvjt38a.exe ) right?

2. Run the downloaded file after you download it. This will prompt you to insert a blank floppy. It might ask you to verify that you really want to overwrite the floppy.

3. _Immediately_ afterwards writeprotect this floppy.

4. Reboot the system with this floppy in the drive. Then follow the on screen prompts. (or see ftp://ftp.pc.ibm.com/pub/pccbbs/commercial_desktop/lvjt38a.txt for further details)
