BIOS Upgrade

BIOS upgrades are available as Windows executable program files. Running the downloaded .exe file on a Windows PC, allows you to create a bootable floppy containing a minimal FreeDOS installation, the BIOS image, and all tools required to update the BIOS. Booting this floppy on the MPL SBC will update the existing BIOS after the normal "Are you sure?" questions. Additionally, the BIOS update floppy allows you to backup the existing BIOS in case you want to revert the upgrade. Please refer to the BIOS user manual for more information.

Warning!
Please update the BIOS only if you are experiencing problems and you are sure that the new BIOS revision will solve it. Careless updating may result to more problems. If you are not sure about the implications, please contact MPL AG.
