Flashing BIOS without floppy drive? in User to User Help Posted December 11, 2007 · Report reply My current Gigabyte motherboard BIOS version doesn't support the Opteron 170 cpu that i am going to install. So it is necessary that i flash my BIOS before i install the cpu. Now the question is, how do i flash my BIOS without a floppy drive? My motherboard supports Q-Flash, so flashing is alot easier. However, it still requires a floppy disk. I have read from other sources about burning a floppy disk image onto a CD-R, and burning the new BIOS version together onto the CD-R, so the CD acts like a floppy. Any suggestions?
