How can I flash an IBM 8183 Thinkcenter BIOS and have it pull a custom default settings file?
Posted on 2005-05-04
I updated some IBM BIOS's for the 8183 Thinkcenters. I put in a floppy disk, reboot and it flashes the BIOS and i take disk out and reboot. If I want to do any custom BIOS settings, like enable WOL wake on lan for the primary boot sequence, set a BIOS password, or any other settings I have to do it manually.
Is there any way to add a configuration file of my Favorite BIOS settings to the BIOS flash disk, so that when it flashes...it updates the FLASH and applies my custom configuration settings. This way I could easily like change the BIOS password like every month very easliy or change some settings "overnight" for like BIOS power options and settings. IBM director is not an option (unless I do not need to install it on the clients - it conflicts with many of our apps). Thanks!
