Asus EEEPC 1000H Bios Update

Internet rumors go around Windows 7 on EEEPc so we have done that and one task is to update the bios with the 2204 version 26/10/2009.

We have used a USB SD Card Reader and a 512Megabyte MMC Card with its SD adapter but in general every old SD (FAT16) should be ok

Here are the steps:

1) Download the bios from EEEPc Asus Site and unzip it. The file will look like 1000H-ASUS-2204.ROM but you have to rename it to 1000H.rom to be able to use it

2) Insert your USB Pen Drive or USB Card Reader and format it as FAT16 then copy the file 1000H.rom onto it

3) Make sure your 1000H is powered off, no USB Device is plugged, it is running on power supply and the battery is fully charged. Insert the USB Pen Drive or USB Card Reader with the bios on it and boot the machine.

4) During POST press ALT+F2 and the Bios Update Utility will start looking for USB Device, it will find yours and will start reading the 1000H.rom file, once done it will delete the current bios and then will replace it with the new one. At the end the procedure will ask you to power the machine off, remove the USB and restart it

5) When you boot it the new bios configuration utility will show up for you to configure some stuff just like boot order priority etc, just do what you need and save it

6) Congratulations! You now have your bios updated and you may proceed to install Windows 7 Ultimate
