    Hello, just signed up here and i want to ask for some assistance with BIOS as i am a complete noob and never performed one.
    _So, i have a Clevo P151HM1 and i have downloaded from your site the last known BIOS update but don't know which one applies better for me: ''The USB'' files or just the entire release that is above?
    _I read that i should use Rufus and format a USB stick so it can read DOS files ?Anyway, would somebody like to tell me step by step what to do etc. in order not to make any mistake?
    _ BIOS updates downloaded from here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/clevo-bios-older-models.556299/

    (If it's possible to pm me it would be better i suppose?)

    You first need to create a bootable USB stick with DOS or FreeDos.
    There are plenty of online guides for creating that.

    You then create a folder on the usb stick and unpack the archive you have downloaded in that folder.
    You then reboot the system and boot from the USB stick.
    Using DOS commands you navigate to this folder and update the EC/KBC first, you need to run the bat file that does the update. System will reboot and you go again on the USB stick and than run the bat file for the BIOS update.
    That's about it.

    - And what commands would they be? What should be the first command and the next ?
    - The bios folder contains 2 subfolders.One is the EC and the other is the BIOS as you said. Each one has 3 files. So, from all these files you claim that i should use only the .bat files to update? Shouldn't i mess with the other two ?
    Thanks for helping me btw_

    You first go into the EC folder and run update.bat by typing the file's name. After the update restart, go in the BIOS folder and run the update.bat file .

    Ok, i made it to a point but still.... I copied the 2 folders ( EC & BIOS ) in the USB after the free-dos format, rebooted, managed to boot via the USB and then i hit the -dir command- like this: '' dir EC13 ''
    and found the folder which contained the update.bat file and then i typed: C:\>UPDATE hit the enter but a message followed saying ''Bad command or filename''.. What am i doing wrong? Which DOS commands do i need to navigate to a folder and then run a file ?

    ok, you do:
    "cd EC13"
    then you write "update.bat"
