Ok,just tried this on my very old system(medion,p4 1.8,ms 6534 mobo,award bios v6.00)from bootale floppy(only way i can with this set up)with correct award/medion update files but it just hangs at the last stage.Tried it three times now with same result,maybe someone has had similar problems?cheers.

could be a few things, corrupt floppy etc but also check the bios doesn't have any built in protection(incl anti virus), also some boards have a jumper to deny writing to the chip

could have BIOS protection in the BIOS - might have to disable that first so you can write the new firmware
