Updating bios on Acer Aspire one
I have an Acer Aspire One AOA150 from my grand daughter who has asked me to fix it as battery will not charge. Details are as follows -
Acer Aspire One model AOA150 (ZG5)
OS is Linpus Linux Lite v1.0.13.£
BIOS version is V0.3301
I have trawled this site and Acer support site to get info on how to do this. The Acer support site only gives a download for Windows XP to update the bios and I don't have a clue how to run .exe files on linus. This is totally alien to me, sorry.
Can anyone help with supplying me the idiots guide to updating bios on her netbook?

Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

How to Create a Bootable DOS USB Drive
add the bios executable and other files to the image
Windows won’t allow you to select the “Create an MS-DOS startup disk” option when formatting a USB drive – it’s grayed out. We will be using Rufus instead. It’s a fast, lightweight application that includes FreeDOS.
Here is hoping you have access to a Windows Box for the rufus usb install method.
