I have a 4 GB Cruzer Micro USB Drive. When mounted there’s a /dev/sr1 device which is pretending to be a CD-ROM, and a normal sdc1 device that is a VFAT/WIN95 partition with some files on. I deleted everything on there, and then copied a flash image for my BIOS to it.
When I boot into my BIOS (GigaByte board), there is an option to go straight into the flasher utility.
The flasher utility can save and load bios from floppies. Floppy A is a real floppy, Floppy B is I assume the USB one, and is only present when I insert my Cruzer USB stick.
But the flasher utility doesn’t see my BIOS file, even though it’s named 8.3
I can save my current BIOS to Floppy B, and on subsequent reboots the file is always there. But when booting into Linux, I can’t see the files the Flasher saves and sees, and vice versa.
Where is this hidden file ? What is the Flasher utility seeing ? Is part of the USB stick pretending to be a floppy and Linux not picking up on that ? How do I get to that area so I can copy the BIOS there and flash ?
