HowTo update Bios Toshiba Satellite Pro S300L PSSD1E


Hello,
I got that notebook. Last lxde Debian is now on it.
Do somebody know how to update the BIOS?

a) create a bootable USB with WinPhlash? http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/htd9502m10000r01de.htm
The BIOS file can be found in http://www.toshiba.eu/support/bios/ and the BIOS file can probably be extracted on a windows pc (version 3 is the latest one)

b) via boot CD?

Any advise is welcome. I am still searching and could not find any reliable proposal in www outside of windows.

Thanks!

Does the errata say some issue that you have directly with this? If not then flashing it may be a bad idea or pointless task.

The freedos was a way to do some of this.
