Dell E521 Bios Update Question with Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
I replaced the hard drive in my Dell Dimension E521, with a new 320GB (non Dell Specific) WD unit, and loaded Windows 7 Pro (again, non Dell specific version). The old hard drive was bad.
I downloaded the 1.1.11 BIOS update (http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/DriverDeta...) to a bootable USB flash drive. When I boot the computer off of the flash drive, it comes up with the C: thing and does nothing else.
Am I supposed to type something in there, to get it to update the BIOS or access the file on the flash drive?
I'm kind of new to this stuff, but learning...
I want to update the BIOS, to be able to install the AMD Athlon 64 X 2 6000+ processor. The current version is 1.1.6.
Thanks in advance for any advice...
