Hi guys, I have a fully working Dell mini 1012, but only with the charger (orginial charger). I get 'battery not recognised' error at startup but F1 to continue and the netbook loads runs fine on the charger. Running W7 32bit. tried to flash the BIOS (Currently A04) to the latest version but I get 'cannot flash BIOS when battery is below 10%' I get this error even when the battery is not inserted. Is there a way to flash the BIOS with the battery out and using a USB pen drive? Cheers!

BTW, the battery is the original Dell battery too.
