    Default need a tutorial on making a dos bootable cd for installing runcore fw

    I tried using Nero and it seemed to make a boot image and before the burn I pasted in the firmware utility. I am installing on a EEE netbook 1000/ linux. I did not see an option in the bios for setting to Ide. When I booted ,it recognized Dr Dos but didn't bring me to the appropriate screen to upgrade

    WHy not make a DOS bootable USB stick instead? These instructions (1-4) can do that for you. Just copy the firmware updater onto the resultant USB disk, boot and run the updater.

    thanks for your reply but I'm not getting anywhere. I had a heck of a time downloading some of those files and the cfg example files would not download. I have a bootable 4gb flash drive and a usb dvdrw and could go either way.I need a method to incorporate a dos bootable device and my executable fw update utility to where I can flash my runcore

    thanks I may try that,one thing I am running into is ,on two Dr. Dos cd boot attempts as well as a floppy drive attempt, I am running into a command screen that does not correspond to the one outlined in the tutorial that comes with the firmware upgrade. I have simply added the "IE6408.exe" file to the dos files in the boot drive and I come to a command screen and I don't know what to input from therehere it says,"" Boot DOS and run IM6408.exe"
    Maybe I give a command such as "run IE6408.exe"?
    If not what do I input to activate my firmware?

    ok,new problem. I got to the updater in dos, and it asked me if I wanted to find the target drive. I pressed Y and it showed my drive was"1" and a match for the firmware update but said "bye" before I could input 1 and created a new command line which gives me an error when I input "1"

    update-I got it, thanks all!!!

    Glad it worked for you. Not working for everyone (as Ive posted under http://forums.tweaktown.com/f78/new-...67/index4.html).

    jsigur, can you also log your experience into the thread http://forums.tweaktown.com/f78/new-...67/index4.html as it may help Runcore find a solution for those of us who arent getting the same luck, thanks.
