Intels website said the process takes 2-5 mins. And that the system will shutdown when done. Im going on 20mins and I still hear the floppy disk working...Anyone ever do this before and how long did it take?

I think he's trying to recover from updating his BIOS, but he didn't actually say it - I'm just going off the title of the thread.

That being said, a "simple" BIOS update never is...................... I've done about 30 or 40 different systems and each time it is a breath-taking, death-defying experience...................... my advice to anyone considering updating BIOS is that if everything on your system works............. DON'T DO IT!! Unless you know for a fact what you are embarking upon and have the confidence and troubleshooting skills to recover when one fails

and they will fail.......................
