    Script to make a USB Thumb Drive to Flash your BIOS with


    ubf2 v2.0.0
    -New BIOS
    -rm the MBR
    -Should come executable
    usbbiosflasher v1.0.1
    -Changed some little stuff....
    usbbiosflasher v1.0.0


    This script makes this task as EZ as 1,2,3...

    You should still read through the description on page=1 of this thread just for the hell of it. There are also a few "notes" there that are not here. If you don't know what the BIOS is then read through my post on page=3 of this thread.

    Thanks one more time to wyth for posting the .ROM file That makes life way more simple.

    Code:

    # Shell script to make a USB Tumb Drive for Flashing BIOS on a Lenovo Ideapad Y510.

    # Name/Rename this script usbbiosflasher and save it to the ~/home directory.
    # Then run the command-  chown root:root usbbiosflasher

    # Then copy the script to the directory /usr/bin.
    # Run this comand to do that- sudo cp ~/usbbiosflasher /usr/bin

    # You also must have the program "mbr" installed

    # You can find these by using the df -T comand. 
    # Run   df -T  in the shell. Then plug in the USB Thumb Drive and run the  df -T  comand agin.
    # The new listing is the USB Thumb Dirve.
    # Also check to make sure the File System tipe is vFAT or FAT16 or FAT32. 
    # If it is not use gparted to format it to FAT32.
