System: Sony Vaio PCG-F403
O/S : Windows 98 SE
BIOS Version : Phoenix Bios R0114K1/RK114K1
Flash Utililty: PhoenixPhlash Utility 4.0 Release 1.49.2AI.7

I 've been trying to upgrade my system to window 2000 Pro but failed during O/S installation, error msg " the file dmio.sys is corrupted'. I thought I needed to upgrade my bios to win 2k first b4 I install the O/S. I used the above PhoenixPhlash utility with the rom bios file W2K05K1.ROM to flash the bios but kept getting this error msg " file open failed on platform.bin". I tried this in DOS and windows and it gave the same error msg. Pls if anyone has come across this problem or knows of a solution, I would appreciate if you would share it with me.
