Has anyone ran a bios upgrade under WINE?
 
I think my machine needs a bios upgrade - I'm having problems with 1Tb disks.

However, the manufacturer offers it's bios upgrades only for windows (xp, vista etc.) in *.exe files. (although it has started offering linux upgrades, these do not cover the only earlier upgrades which are the ones I need).

Has anyone done a bios upgrade by running these .exe files under Wine?

I don't think a BIOS upgrade will fix your problem. I've only ever seen this sort of thing cause more problems than it may solve.

Anyhow, Linux looks beyond the BIOS.

Thanks - I didn't realise that.

Looks like I'm back to square one (again).
