    Have a 533i eMachine and want to install a larger hard drive. Is there anyway I can flash the Bios. eMachine site doesn't offer any info.
    Thanks.

    Go to http://www.lavalys.com and download the excellent and free Everest Home which, when run, will give you the complete and utter rundown on what is in your computer including, if available the web address from which to download a BIOS update. It shouldn't, however, be necessary to update BIOS just to add a larger hard disk.

    Guessing from your processor that you're probably running '98, you'll need to run fdisk from your boot up floppy to partition the new drive and format it to store data. Post back with some more details and someone will be able to guidde you through.
