    You need to download and unzip two files from the Asus website. One is the BIOS file, the other is the Award BIOS flash utility.

    Within the flash utility zip folder is a readme.txt with step by step instructions. You can make the required boot floppy on another computer. If the PC with the a7a266 motherboard doesn't have a floppy drive you will need to make a bootable CD/DVD instead.
