|This is the instructions for installing the bios update:|
It's done after booting from a floppy disk created by running the rompaq download. It's not done during a windows session. The OS specs are I believe to make sure you're using an OS that can run the download. ME should have no problem running the download.
The download page shows two bios downloads. The 'remote' one is for a network setup. I assume that's not your case. The second--system rompaq--is what you probably need.
That said, an update shouldn't be needed for you to access the bios. I assume you're hitting F10 at the proper time? Maybe something else is going on.
Obama's a 2012'er. That explains EVERYTHING..
