I *think* XP will make a boot floppy. Or download from bootdisk.com

Either way, you should do a plain [no driver] boot. Press F5 to skip the config.

If at first you don't succeed, you're about average.

If you've never done a BIOS update before, you'd be wise to pay a shop to do it for you. One wrong move can turn your motherboard into a paperweight.
