hi,

so i got hold of a thinkpad and i need to flash the bios so it supports xp.I have downloaded the bios file and made a bootable cd with drdose on it.

here is my problem when i run the flash program it starts ok then it asks for me to extract the file so it can flash.

well i can't seem to do this. I downloaded the bios diskette from ibm site

were can i extract the file to so i can flash the bios

i have formatted the drive to FAT now and tried to copy it over but i just get

"insert a blank diskette in drive c:"

"diskette error try another"

why won't it do it?

is it because the bios is embedded in this exe file and its looking for a diskette
can;t i extract the file and write it to c:

?

thanks in advance

any help would be appreciated
