I thought that...

I *strongly* suggest you get a std. int. floppy drive and hook it up and test it. Once its OK, proceed with flash process and when prompted(if applicable) save old .BIN file. Visit the support website and read what the flash process entails just to be sure no other flash maybe applicable, like "online". Otherwise, I don't think what you plan to do is flesible. BUT, hey if you go ahead anyways and it works, please give full details of your system specs, etc. to see why that was possible. Laptop?

good luck -----Willy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
