Dell Latitude (7404) - I am suspecting the last bios update I performed A09 corrupted the chip to a usable but semi-unstable system exerting behavior un-correctable when downgrade/upgrading the BIOS versions. Answers and reply's need to be Out of the box thinking. All basic and advanced steps were performed. bring your Jedi nightforce mode on.
BIOS flash will not Upgrade nor Downgrade its current version Stuck at A09
Remedy steps tried:
What hasn't been tried
Try updating the BIOS using a USB stick with FreeDOS image ( http://joelinoff.com/blog/?p=431 ) and the EXE file. I used it to downgrade BIOS on E6400.
Create the bootable USB flash drive.
F12 to change boot order to boot from the USB flash drive. You will end up in DOS.
Run ****.EXE file
Thank you for the answer however I do not think you understand the climate of the issue. I have already thought of using Legacy Dos however the bios refuses to set boot priorities and sequence when selecting legacy.
Outside the box thinking is it possible to boot to freedos through integrated NiC w/pxe (pxe-boot)
