Usually firmware updates require that you either run them to extract some
files that later you run under DOS or are targeted to run under DOS when you
boot directly.
Could you tell your brand - it could help a little?
FreeDOS or something like this should do - depends what the instructions to
the file say.
You may look for a archiver under dos that extracts SFX .exe files.
Good luck!

2006/7/21, Erik Nørgaard <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>:


I have just downloaded a bios firmware update for my laptop, but it
assumes that I run windows: close all programs, execute whatever.exe and

Is there some utility that will allow me to update the firmware running
freebsd or temporarily boot in some windows emulated environment?

Thanks, Erik
