Based on the things I've read, I should be able to move the BIOS jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3 and power up the machine with a BIOS restore floppy in the drive to restore the BIOS. I've tried this but am missing something.
The windows based BIOS update from Gateway comes with a windows app, a .bin, .map, and a .sys file. I've tried putting the .bin .map and .sys files on a floppy to restore the screwed up BIOS. I've also tried just placing the .bin file on floppy. Either way, when starting up with the floppy, the drive attempts to read it then emits 4 connected sounding beeps.
