Dell I910 Mini/Vostro A90 USB Key Drive flashBIOS Utility - 05-19-2009, 11:42 PM
Created a simple utility program that will format a DOS bootable USB Flash Drive that you can then boot from in order to flash up to the latest I910 Mini / Vostro A90 flashBIOS.
Successfully tested each BIOS included so I know it is working 100%.

Confirm USB BIOS Legacy Support is ENABLED in BIOS under Advanced settings to allow booting from USB flash drive!

Ellemenope has provided Step by Step instructions for creating the DOS bootable USB Flash here:http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/ubun...html#post12279
BTW: There is no hardware difference between Mini9 and Vostro A90 allowing Mini/A90 interchangeable BIOS!
CONFIRMED: Recovery from failed Windoze flash method!
NOTE: Requires USB Floppy drive for recovery: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductLi ... y%20Drives
To Use: Remove battery and power adapter. Confirm USB floppy drive is plugged in. While pressing and holding Fn & B keys, attach power adapter plug. The power lights will momentarily blink and your Mini will beep once. Continue to hold Fn & B and press the power button. Release the keys once floppy drive begins reading. Your Mini will beep continually until the flash is completed and reboots. Note: The display is not available during this process.
