First of all, what benefits do you have updating your BIOS? Well, it depends on what is going to be improved with the new version (however you can see all about this in the documentation of the new version).

If you want to update your BIOS this is basically what you have to do:

  • Open the terminal as root and type fdisk -l to recognize the usb stick, so you can unmount it.
  • Now type:

    mkdosfs -n "Name_Pendrive" -I /dev/sdf1

    to format in Fat16

    mkfs.vfat -n "Name_Pendrive" -I /dev/sdf1

    instead, to format in Fat32.
  • Install 'unetbootin'
  • Use unetbootin to put FreeDOS on an USB stick
  • Download the latest BIOS from the Acer webpage (latest is v.1.29)
  • Unzip the BIOS-files to the USB stick
  • Reboot and configure the BIOS to boot from the USB stick before the SSD/HDD (at the boot press F12)
  • Select "FreeDOS Safe Mode (don’t load any drivers)". This ensures the CPU is running in real mode which is highly recommended for any kind of firmware update.
  • Now write near "A:\>" c:
  • Now write near "C:\>" dir/w
  • Now start the BIOS update utility writing KAV60.BAT
  • At the end of the process the netbook will reboot (if not you have to reboot it manually)
  • Remove the battery pack and AC adapter and after few seconds plug in the battery pack or AC adapter again.
  • Configure the BIOS to start from the HDD/SSD first again (usually you don't need to do this, it is automatic)
  • At the boot click F2 and save the configuration of your new BIOS. If needed change what you need to change...carefully.
  • Done. Now you have the latest version of the BIOS on your netbook!
