Bios Upgrade for Sun Machines (eg., w1100z workstation)

Related to ST #50668 and SunHardware#Warranty_procedure_on_Sun_Hardwa

Before the BIOS can be upgraded, boot-order might need to be changed so CD is higher priority than disk.

The bootable Bios Upgrade CD (version 2.3) is stored in the hardware lab CSCF CD-Library binder "Motherboard & Laptop Drivers". It boots to a menu which includes "BIOS upgrade". Chose it; it goes through a series of steps and checks; it finishes in about 2 minutes.

After the BIOS upgrade is finished, any changes to the BIOS configuration need to be reapplied (such as admin password and boot-order).

The Upgrade CD can also be downloaded here: http://www.sun.com/desktop/workstation/w1100z/downloads.html -- DanielAllen - 02 Feb 2006
