Be aware that if you do it incorrectly, you could very well have to replace the motherboard. Tell us what the problem is and it may not need a BIOS update.That being said, what is it that you think a BIOS upgrade is going to fix? Having read the previous posts in this thread you will know that you need to go to the Motherboard manufactures web site.
BIOS updates are available at the motherboard manufacturer's website.
There should be detailed instructions on how to perform the flash & an explanation of the risks involved.

The reply will appear here Hi, I have a similar problem on Phoenix - Award BIOS v6.00PGMy BIOS doesn't see a new SATA HDD. Click on the button Start a New Discussion at the bottom of this page to start your own Topic. Supply all the info you can come up with, including the make and model of the brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system the make and model of your mboard.
Moreover, there are no 'lines' in BIOS saying anything SATA related, only IDE 'lines' which have another HDD and 2 DVD drives against them. The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots. If your mboard has SATA support - has SATA data headers -the bios already supports recognizing SATA drives.
However, if you have an older mboard that only recognizes the original SATA specs, recent and new SATA II or SATA III drives may NOT be recognized unless you install a jumper on two pins on the drive to limit it to the original SATA specs, 150mbytes/sec max burst data transfer rate.
BIOS updates must be obtained from the computer or motherboard manufacturer.
The BIOS as supplied by Phoenix must be customized by the manufacturer to match your hardware.
Any BIOS update must be a VERY close match for your hardware or your system will be unbootable. In some cases the only recovery is physical replacement of the BIOS chips - if they are available.
The general rule regarding BIOS updates is that they are done only when necessary, not just because there is a later version available.
