Hello

Looking to update the bios on my laptop as I have an issue with the USB ports not working so hope this will sort it. The BIOS update is via windows. The update works via windows, so was wondering how to do it.

Thanks

If Toshiba doesn't provide a standalone BIOS update, that can be booted off a CD (or even a floppy disk), there is probably no save way to do the BIOS upgrade than to install Windows (and maybe remove it after the update).

Could it be done with WINE or with the windows program on Hirens Boot DVD?

You can't use Wine but there should be something on Hirens that will let you flash your BIOS.
