Hi,

I have installed Ubuntu 11 on my Toshiba Satellite Pro A220. I would like to upgrade the bios. However, Toshiba only provides the driver for Windows :(

Nevertheless, I went and downloaded the bios update anyway and extracted the EXE file.

I was looking for an ISO file as someone said I could use that file to boot and then update the bios. However, there are no ISO file in the extracted EXE :confused:

It does have a ROM file though and a few other files (e.g. DLLs)

Can someone please show me how I can update my bios?

Thanks very much in advance!

PS: The Toshiba bios driver can be found here:
