Now if you can't get this to work, you've either got a problem, or you're trying to do this from inside a DOS window. If the latter is the case, DO NOT under any circumstance do it as you'll only make your life more difficult.
/jabil was the one that worked when I flashed my Inspiron 8200 with a Latitude C840 BIOS....I did that so I could use a CDock II with my Inspiron. Again however, I beleive you will reap no benefit at all from flashing your E1705 with an XPS BIOS.
With and without the /forceit addition, i am told that the Bios version I am trying to flash does not match my board.
With the /jabil addition, I get the message "invalid command line parameters"
The reason I am doing this is quite simple.
My system has a 945GM chip. Since the 1705 Bios does not allow the use of the PCI-E bus to connect an external graphic board, I have some hope that the 1710 Bios will make this possible.
