    I want to flash my motherboard bios but I don't have a floppy drive in my HTPC. To flash you usually have to boot up in DOS, I can arrange the boot sequence so it looks on the CD-ROM drive first, I just need to know of some way to get those files onto a CD-R. Anyone know how?

    You might try poking around at Bootdisk.com for what you need.

    Make sure your BIOS supports booting off of CD first! However, I do believe most newer motherboards support this in their BIOS.

    What sort of PC is this? If its a Dell take another look on their site as there should be a file to make a CDR boot disk to allow you to update the BIOS.
