I don't want to get into a big OT discussion on the list (esp. being new
here), but it looks like this just boots a dos image. I've been able to boot
dos on a cd iso I got on allbootdisks.com, and access the HP flash utility
(which is just a bundled version of the Phoenix bios winphlash utility) on a
usb key, but it says it won't run in dos mode.
It will apparently (from what I've read) run at a dos command prompt within
windoze. But windoze won't run from a cd without being installed (again
according to what I've read), and that's what I want to avoid.
But thanks for the suggestion.
These are my opinions. Get your own.
