Windows 7: Phoenix AwardBIOS

03 Jun 2009   #11
Microsoft MVP

Win 7 Ultimate x64

Let's clear up a few things here,

- Phoenix/Award, AMI, etc DO NOT provide bios updates to end users, they only provide the original bios/bios chip to the motherboard or system builder, whi then customizes it for the motherboard.

- ALL bios updates come from the system builder in the case of the OP's laptop (or any other Dell/HP/etc built computer) and nowhere else; you cannot use a bios from a motherboard manufacturer.

- if you have a custom or self-built computer then you would get the bios update from the motherboard manufacturer.

Anyone scouring the net looking for a bios update is wasting their time, as getting a bios from anywhere other than the system builder or motherboard manufacturer runs a very good chance of bricking the motherboard.
