    Dell Latitude D830 BIOS Update from A15 to A17

    I installed Ubuntu 12.05 Desktop on my uncle's laptop today to get him away from WinXP. I'd like to update the BIOS version from A15 to A17, the most recent. However, I'm unable to find the A17 file(s), or a method (outside using wine) to flash the BIOS to this latest version.

    I found this link, which would probably be helpful, IF the FTP it led to had the A17 BIOS files.

    Could anyone provide help on finding the BIOS A17 update?
