    I've just install a new giga-byte GA-7vmm MOBO.Also a new HD and eveything works OK. When I try to to get into the bios a message box appears "flash utility v1.03"
    Tells me to "Load bios from Floppy"
    I've tried downloading from website to floppy(new system isn't on the web) and then typing in path, but it tells me it can't find the file.
    I'm confused why I have to download the bios setup in the first place. I thought that it would be already configured. I can't get into the setup until I load a file recognised.
    Any help or direction would be appreciated

    According to giga byte

    ENTERING SETUP
    Power ON the computer and press <Del> immediately will allow you to enter Setup. If
    unsuccessful, you can restart the system and try again by pressing the "RESET" bottom on the
    system case.

    I am pressing F1 to get in but it stops me at the first screen to load from floppy and won't let me get any further if it is not the right file. The only software that came with the MOBO was a cd with drivers and a few programs.
    Any help would be appreciated.
