Subject: [gentoo-user] Update BIOS with 4MB .exe
Date: Mon, 16 Apr 2012 10:16:31
1 I'm amazed this is so difficult but I've just spent 3 hours trying to
2 update the BIOS on my Dell XPS 13 and hit nothing but dead ends. The
3 root of the problem seems to be that the 4MB BIOS update file is too
4 large for the available 1.44MB DOS boot disks. Apparently FreeDOS had
5 a LiveCD available at some point but it has reportedly been
6 unavailable for quite some time.
8 The following method looks promising but it also doesn't work. DOS
9 can't seem to execute the .exe file which sits outside of the boot

14 Does anyone know how to do this?
