My computer has:
- Biostar TFORCE 6100-939 mobo
- AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.0GHz / 512KB Cache / 1000MHz FSB / Venice / Hyper-Transport / OEM / Socket 939 / Processor
- 2x1G twin sticks RAM
- Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 SATA 3.0Gb/s 320-GB hdd
- Windows XP Pro X64
I just installed a new FDD. It works fine and it's recognized by My Computer but it's not shown in Disk Management. Is this normal?
The reason I'm asking is because I have an update for my BIOS. I don't understand it too much but I have a built in BIOS flashing option. I downloaded the update to a floppy, rebooted my computer with the floppy still in the drive and went into CMOS to enable the floppy (I had it turned off because X64 in my pc needs a floppy or I have to press F1 whenever I boot up). I also changed the order of the boot sequence so that the FDD is first, my DVD drive is second and my hdd is third. When I tried to use the built-in BIOS flash, it couldn't do it. I received an error message that said it failed but it didn't give a reason. I tried this 3 times but got the same results.
When I booted up my computer without the floppy in the drive, it said "Boot from CD:" which it did before I installed the floppy and changed the boot sequence, and it booted up. I don't know why this is happening.
Can someone help me out?
