Updating bios settings
Can somebody please walk me through the steps as I am down business wise because of this issue.
Here’s how to update the Dell BIOS in a task sequence. Since I primarily deploy x64 machines, the task sequence (or at least it’s actions) must run inside the guest OS, and not in Win PE.
There are a few things to do first before updating your computer's BIOS.As I see it, there's 2 ways to save settings: 1) In the BIOS/EEPROM; Asus' BIOS gives a few slots to save settings 2) Export to a USB drive I totally understand why (1) does get erased during a BIOS update.But I haven't been able to restore settings from a USB stick. Taking photos of each setup page is really ineffective and tedious. You can not automatically restore settings from one bios version to another, you can like you say, save to txt. Save the current config under 'Tools' just in case 3.If you computer does not have an AMI reference, refer to your computer providers web site for guidance. Don't forget to take a look at part 1 of this tutorial series, which introduces your to the BIOS concept, AMIBIOS beep error codes and the BIOS Setup Utility. Do you know of a better, easier way to update your AMI BIOS than what is described in this tutorial?
If you require more details on this step, go to the AMI BIOS Unzip the American Megatrends BIOS Update utility. Some professionals recommend you don't update your BIOS unless absolutely necessary.
