So, you have a Dell Notebook/PC and want to update it's BIOS on Linux, but, all you can find is ".exe" files?
Have a look at this page: Dell Bios Update
The process is simple! Just 3 commands and a file to download (the BIOS in question).
Ps-1. If you are updating a Notebook, make sure it's plugged on a Power Supply, or the BIOS updater will complain =P
Ps-2. Updating the BIOS is something DANGEROUS and may brick you computer! Make sure you know what you are doing before starting.
As one of my first posts, I decided to share with you a screenshot of my desktop, since it's the place I'm most of the time =P
I'm running Ubuntu (version 10.04 - Lucid Lynx) Linux Distro, on a Dell Inspiron 1545. It came pre-installed with Microsoft Windows Vista, but, it never really saw the light of the day!
So, what do you think?
