I was wondering how flashing a bios works. I see people have all sorts of problems with motherboards and people a lot of the time say "flash your bios with the latest firmware" or something like that. The thing is people have problems like their processor not being compatible with the motherboard until they flash it. How does that work, surely if you do the bios flahsing by putting a floppy disk in your computer and runningdos or whatever is needed for the flash tool, would you not need the processor for that in the first place?
I'm guessing i've got confused somewhere but i just can't seem to find anywhere how it all happens.
