A guidance how to create a bootable USB-Stick / Pendrive (incl. MS-DOS system files) to perform a BIOS update.
The following tools are needed:
Instruction to create a bootable USB-Stick
Starting the BIOS-Update from USB-Stick
First, go into your BIOS-Setup and change the Bootsequence to USB-Stick/Drive (search for an option like Bootsequence, First Boot Device, or something similarly).
Insert the USB-Stick and restart your PC. If all went well - MS-DOS starts and you can see the famous DOS-Prompt (C:\>).
Now you can start the BIOS update. Remember: it's a good idea to backup the old BIOS version.
Hello to you all. The BIOS of my Toshiba Satellite P200 does not have the USB disk or stick Boot option, but it has floppy boot possibility by an USB external floppy drive. How to make an USB stick to look like the floppy drive and having at the same time a live linux OS on that stick. Thanks.Jo Bernard 2.Jul.2014 23:35

You should ask a friend with experience bios knowledge, or: Make a bootable USB-Stick and copy all bios files which were inside the DOS folder (nb-bios-e1425m-10201gb.exe) onto the pendrive. Boot from pendrive and insert "GO.bat
" at the command prompt. Or: use the Windows files to update the bios within Windows.
I have a Gigabyte E1425M laptop and need to update BIOS.WHP that i downloaded from gigabyte website, there is no instructions on gigabyte website or any other place on internet that I can find to get the process to update the BIOS. Can anyone help with a step by step details.FJQ 20.Jun.2014 18:48
Man,thank you!! Bios update complete with success!! A was able to update my bios just as you say, but with a little tweak of mine on the last step. The thing is, my PC was booting up via pen drive, but it stopped at the DOS prompt (common problem that I saw here). I discovered that the DOS prompt doesnt know how to open/manage ".EXE" files. You will run into this problem if your board manufacturer gives you a BIOS update as a single ".EXE" file download. To be explicit, you wont know where to find our flashtool nor bios file on the last step (Copy your flashtool and the BIOS file onto the USB-Stick). So from here, what I did was extracting the contents to my bootable pen drive (SIMPLE!). Yes, just extracting! Because, you will notice that the file given by you manufacturer is a self extracting bios ".EXE" file that copy its contents to a floppy disk and creates a bootable floppy disk. So, what you need to do is, instead of extracting the contents to the floppy, do it to a temporary folder (you may create a new folder called "temp"). When I run (on a Windows7 PC) the ".EXE" file downloaded from my manufacturer website, it gives me an option to extract the files to a chosen folder. After that, the last thing is copying the files on your "temp" folder to your pen drive. Attention, if the in the process it is asked if you want to Copy or Replace any file that is already on your usb, keep your original files on the usb. And that is all, after this your usb should be ready. From here, restart yor PC booting from the usb, and the bios update process should start automatically. Just follow the on screen instructions and you should be ok. Thank you again biosflash for this magnificent tip!!Mercio Silva 28.May.2014 18:45

I would guess that you have to copy all of them on to the pendrive. Boot the pendrive and insert the command: flash.bat at the DOS prompt.
