Installation instructions

Important Information

CAUTION: One of two error conditions may be encountered when attempting to upgrade the Dell Latitude CPi A BIOS without using the Dell BIOS Upgrade Disk image.

1. "Program too big to fit in memory" This occurs when using the cpi[version].exe flash program in conjunction with DOS versions newer than 6.22.

2. "Error! Make sure the file cpi[version].exe is in the current
device A:" This error occurs when using the upgrade.exe program to launch the BIOS flash program in conjunction with DOS versions newer than 6.22.

Both error messages occur because not enough free RAM exists in DOS versions newer than 6.22 for the programs to successfully execute. To avoid these error messages use the Dell BIOS Upgrade Disk to flash the system.
