    Compressed folder -> ISO for BIOS flash???

    Is there a step-by-step anywhere?

    Every link I find seems to refer me to another link, and it sure isn't like burning an install disk...

    I got the files extracted, but how to create the bootable CD?

    If it's an ISO file that you've downloaded, you probably don't need to decompress it. Have a look here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto
    Forum DOs and DON'Ts
    Never assume that information you find using a search engine is up-to-date.

    Thanks.

    Well, it's NOT an ISO that I've downloaded; that's what I was trying to say when I said "it sure isn't like burning an install disk...." (which is an ISO)

    Anybody know how to make an ISO of these BIOS update files? One is .ROM, another is .exe, and the third is .bat.

    Are you sure you need to make it bootable?

    It depends on the board manufacturer of course, but with mine (Asus) all I have to do is burn the bios image file to a basic data cd then boot up with it in the drive. The board recognises the file and automatically flashes it to BIOS. I have a feeling this is just Asus's smart recovery mechanism though.

    What are the specs of the system you're trying to flash?

    Yes; there is a how-to at the manufacturer web site. It says download the files, and burn them to a bootable disk.

    I have the files downloaded
    ME

    One is .ROM, another is .exe, and the third is .bat.
    And now I need to create a bootable disk, with those files added.

    Anybody?
