First of all unzip the new bios file and utility to a bootable floppy disk. I have visited gigabytes websight many times and they have many warnings every where about flashing the bios on your mainboard. If you do not do it correctly the first time you probably won't get a second chance, If this makes you uncomfortable than take the board to a computer shop and have them do it. Most good shops will have an eprom burner to make a backup of your bios in case there is a problem. Hope this helps.
