>From what I remember of flashing the BIOS on my GA7-VAX there was an option to
download an upgrade file, save it to floppy, reboot your machine and upgrade
the BIOS from the BIOS... no need to use any operating system. Check the
Gigabyte site and you might find there are two upgrade options: One via
windows and one direct from the BIOS. It was extremely easy. One point I did
notice however was that it did not seem to like upgrading across several
updates at once and I ended up downloading a series of upgrades and upgrading
one at a time to get to where I wanted to be.
