Insufficient extended memory?
« on: 27-August-05, 00:25:41 »

I am trying to flash my bios - windows me startdisk but when i start the command from the virtual Ram drive it says insufficient extended memory. Should I expand the "extended memory" in some way and what to do to flash my bios

PS i read the forum topics already and also sent a message to tiresmoke but no help so far

I do noyt give private help as that does not help others.

It sounds like you have the Config.sys file fouled up in a DOS startup disl. Or you are trying to flash using a DOS program in Windows.

Personally my suggest is always to have Live Update create a Bios Flash Diskette. Not to have Live update to flash it for you though. Then use the diskette that was created to boot from. This way you get a disk that will work and that sets up a RAMdisk that you actually flash from.
