Here is a tool to make a Dos bootable USB Key
The only thing that you may need is how to create a USB dos bootable media.
Download a tool called BootFlashDOs, then it is self-explanatory.
All the best,
You dont need makefloppy.bat.
Use this method:
Note: BOOT BLOCK changed, please run fbb.bat to update BIOS.
1. Extract BIOS.ZIP to a bootable storage such as USB DISK-ON-KEY.
2. Boot the system and press <F2> to run BIOS Setup.
3. For reference Write down the current custom changes to any default settings in the BIOS Setup program. CMOS settings will be preserved across BIOS
updates, but you may wish to use the "Save Custom Defaults" option on the
Exit tab to restore defaults later. Press <ESC> to exit BIOS Setup.
4. Place the bootable storage such as USB DISK-ON-KEY containing the new BIOS into USB port of the system, and boot to pure DOS mode. (non-himem environment)
5. Run fbb.bat to update both system ROM and bootblock.
**NOTE** : jumper J1B1 (BIOS partition selection) should be set to pins 1-2 to select the correct BIOS partition.
6. Please use the latest distributed tools (fbb.bat/afudos.exe to update BIOS.
Command "fbb.bat" will program main BIOS & bootblock.
7. When BIOS flash update is complete, it will display a message that all writing and verification of flash is done.
Next, power cycle the system.
8. If the FLASH process fails, please follow the BIOS Recovery Instructions at the end of this document to recover the system BIOS.
9. Press <F2> to enter BIOS Setup, and verify the custom values you wrote down in step 3 have been preserved. If you used the "Save Custom Defaults"
option, you can now "Load Custom Defaults".
Press <F10> to save the values and exit Setup.
As you can see in the fbb.bat, there are the command to update the bios.
AFUDOS /isbd2a075.rom /pb /c2
This means you just need to these three files on a USB Dos Bootable Key to perform the update.
All the best,
The makefloppy.bat file is for BIOS image that could fit a floppy diskette. Unfortunately in this release the BIOS image is bigger than 1.44MB, so you'll have to use a bootable USB disk. There are many different brand/model of USB devices out there, and there's no utility that could fit them all. However, most likely one of them on http://bootdisk.com/pendrive.htm will work based on my experience. What's your concern using these utilities?
