I wanted to be able to boot from a USB thumb drive. HP's site says their bios upgrade is for Vista only.
Does this make a difference and what other alternatives do I have.
The reply will appear here Hi, I have a similar problem on Phoenix - Award BIOS v6.00PGMy BIOS doesn't see a new SATA HDD. Click on the button Start a New Discussion at the bottom of this page to start your own Topic. Supply all the info you can come up with, including the make and model of the brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system the make and model of your mboard.
Moreover, there are no 'lines' in BIOS saying anything SATA related, only IDE 'lines' which have another HDD and 2 DVD drives against them. The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots. If your mboard has SATA support - has SATA data headers -the bios already supports recognizing SATA drives.
BIOS updates are available at the motherboard manufacturer's website.
There should be detailed instructions on how to perform the flash & an explanation of the risks involved.BIOS updates must be obtained from the computer or motherboard manufacturer.The BIOS as supplied by Phoenix must be customized by the manufacturer to match your hardware.System: Operating system: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium(32 bit) Manufacturer: HP-Pavilion Model: GX614AA-ABA a6330f Serial Number: CNH7510Y3L uuid: 80AD3FA886E6591090039E83995C4174 BIOS type: Phoenix - Award BIOS v6.00PG BIOS ID: 10/29/2007-MCP61P-NARRA-00 BIOS sign on: None BIOS date: 20 This computer was originally loaded with Vista. I have a similar situation in that my Sony laptop originally had Vista. I wanted to try virtualization but it was not supported in my Bios. When I updated the Bios I also gained the virtualization capability in Win 7.I would say the Bios is independent of the OS and therefore a Bios update is a Bios update regardless of the OS.Browse the list below of the most popular Award BIOS / Motherboard devices to find yours.
