    BIOS is the replacement for the old boot loader tape, boot loaders required manual input to tell the computer to read boot loader.

    Hey I'd like an answer asap, I recently reseted my pc and now windows doesn't reconize my keyboard or mice but bios does, any way to fix? I'll keep this post updated til we find a fix to help others too. Thanks

  • Richard Benjamin

    the bios was read only at one point, but you left out some important details. to upgrade it you got the new bios on an eprom and installed it. now the chip the bios is on can be flashed to upgrade the bios directly. you mention disk partitions less than 2tb, i remember partition sizes starting at 32mb. yes that is megabytes.
