Live Bios Update

Postby adil » Fri May 17, 2002 9:01 am

Hi,
I am trying to research about Live Bios updates on various motherboards.
I have heard that there are some motherboards on which Bios is such that it updates automatically without user intervention. I have only heard about this!

I would like to know if some one knows about this topic, specifically if the Bios updates are being made automatically when the user is connected to the internet. Meaning a silent upgrade is underway with out user knowing about it.

Thank you
Adil

well my Gigabyte GA7-VTXE+ comes with a prog called @bios

have used it once to do a bios flash and it work fine

but tha idea of letting windows ( an unpradictable o/s ) do a bios flash did scare the gibers out of me at the time

it's not a background item though you have to set it up to do a falsh as it gives the option to save the current bios incase thing go wrong

you can't do a silent bios upgrade as you need to reboot the system to make the new bios active

any help to you :)
The whole world is a game and we are but players within it

but what a game :D
