I'm not quite sure what you mean by Live CD. In order to minimize the amount of back-and-forth in this issue and thread bloating, if it's not too much inconvenience could you please outline a quick procedure on how to accomplish this or maybe you know of another forum posting that explains this?
A live CD is a CD that you can boot your computer off of. Once you burn the CD, you will have to tap the F12 key when you turn on the computer, and chose to boot from the CD drive. Here are the instructions from the guide about the upgrade.
|Burn the ISO using Nero or Roxio or any decent CD burning software, then restart you PC and press F12 at the Dell Logo screen and select CD-rom as your boot device.
Choose Option 1
Choose Option 1 again
Choose Option 2
Press any key
If you get an error about flashing your bios with an older bios just push "C" to continue.
Press Y to flash your bios with the XPS2 Bios.
System will restart and your 9300 now believes its a XPS.
You can download the ISO for the live CD in the link in my signature.
After you flash to the XPS BIOS, you can then download the newest (A05) XPS BIOS and flash to it. You won't get any errors because your computer already thinks it's an XPS.
