    It's not suggested to flash with a CD, but I've done it several times with no problems. I used my win98 boot disk and let it get to the prompt...then swapped the CD with the flash CD.

    Well what brand is your motherboard? Some motherboard manufacturers have windows utilities that you can download that allows you to flash within windows. On my abit motherboard I use a program called flashmenu that flashes my bios with one click.

    Why not just use Winflash? I have used that program to flash many a MSI bios right in windows. Just a thought.
