Post HOWTO: Update BIOS Using CD

Its a lot more comfortable to update the BIOS by using generated ISO image with all needed files to update, then to struggle with old floppies, which you also not always can use, below is a script that generates bootable ISO image called cd.iso, you can burn it and use it to update you BIOS.

I also attached bootable floppy image __bootable.img that is needed to create such bootable ISO, which you need to gunzip and put in the same place as the script.

Code:
#! /bin/sh

BOOT=__bootdisk.img

if [ ${#} -eq 0 ]
then
  echo "usage: $( basename ${0} ) BIOS.rom FLASH.exe ..."
  exit 1
fi

mkisofs -J -R -b ${BOOT} -o cd.iso ${BOOT} $@
