It is not a good idea to update a BIOS using a Windows updater. These work *most* of the time, but fail far more than the DOS versions do.

Do you have a floppy disk drive in that PC?

If you still want to use the Windows updater anyway, delete that ROM file and download it again. You could have had a bad download.

Glad to hear it.

Always a good idea to get the correct BIOS! You are lucky the system would not allow you to install the wrong one. You may have been left with a very large doorstop.
