Sam K ,You can't just load the .exe file on to the Cd you have to extract the rom file from the executable ,use something like isobuster or magiciso

I tried different compatibility modes and also running it administrator (even though my account has administrator privileges) and I got the same error.

Format a usb pendrive to make it bootable
  1. Copy the file 1535_A06.EXE to a bootable usb pendrive
  2. Boot from the usb pendrive to the DOS prompt.
  3. Run the file by typing Y:\1535_A06.EXE (where y is the drive letter where the executable is located).

Ah I didn't know that. I have MagicISO but I can't find the option to extract the rom file from the executable. I googled around after I read your post and I also saw that some people mentioned extracting a .wph file from the .exe bios file as well. So after I put the rom (or wph) file on the boot cd, do I simply execute it from command line?

Yes , But I personnally would go the usb pendrive route, extracting a bios file by a third party software then burning it to a cd may cause problems and could end up with a dead laptop

OK I'm in the process of taking your advice. First I tried making a bootable usb following the instructions on the following link but the bootable usb that gets created immediately starts the Windows 7 install process because it has you copy the entire Windows 7 dvd to the usb drive.

Now I'm trying these instructions.

I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks again for all your help.

Thanks. It worked!

For those who are interested, I created the bootable USB stick using the instructions on the following link and then copied the 1535_A06.EXE file to the USB stick.

Bios-boot-usb-stick - Howto: BIOS-Update per bootable USB-Stick - www.biosflash.com

After I booted up using the USB stick, I simply ran the 1535_A06.EXE file from the drive.

I would have never guessed that creating a bootable CD was so much more difficult than the a bootable USB.

Thanks pebbly and marsmimar for all your help.
