somebody can help me to install the last version of bios driver without operating system in my dell precision T3600?
For exemple where can I find the file of the driver and not the executable application and if I find it, where must I copy in my pc?
I suggest you to download Latest BIOS software to a bootable USB device. Firstly Connect the USB device after restarting the computer while tapping F12 key. This gives you boot options from which you need to select USB device. You should see the BIOS software which has already been copied to the USB driver. Select the file and start the application. Ii recommend you to connect the AC adaptor while flashing BIOS. Restart your once this process is complete.
Follow the steps mentioned below:
1.Download the file: T3600A04.exe (5MB) to USB drive
2.Boot from the USB to the DOS prompt.
3. Run the file by typing T3600A04.exe (where y is the drive letter where the executable is located).
Please revert for any further queries and I would be glad to help you further
Thanks & Regards
And how make a bootable USB with only the file of update ?
Because, if I copy only T3600A04.exe on my USB, the USB is not recognized when I boot my PC !
With the DVD of windows, I can access to the command. And I can see my file in my USB.
BUT when I try to run T3600A04.exe, The prompt says me :
"The sub-system required to take care of the type of image is not present"
How run this executable?!!!
It's the good prompt or can I find another? and where?
I apologize for the wrong information given in the previous post. I would like to inform you that we will be able to do the BIOS update only in the operating system. It wont work without or outside the operating system.
Please let us know in case of any queries
Thanks and regards
I did all you suggested but when I get to run the bios.exe program it says that the programm cannot be run in DOS mode. Not sure you can use this process for the latest dell bios executables?
As informed by DELL-Harish R you will never be able to flash BIOS in DOS prompt or outside the Operating system. The system should boot to the desktop to perform this step.
I have almost the same issue i have to update my BIOS on my Inspiron 3721 to the latest BIOS available, but i am not running windows (but the latest ubuntu) on this machine.
