Step 4. Extract the contents of the .ZIP file you downloaded, onto the bootable floppy disk that you created during Step 3.

Step 5. Place the bootable floppy containing the BIOS files into drive a: of the system that you want to upgrade and boot the system.  (Make sure the BIOS setting has drive A has a primary boot check.)

Step 6. At the command prompt type Flash.bat
