    Hello

    I've got this super notebook, thinkpad 240, installed systems are win98
    and xp. I don't have flopy drive and I want to update BIOS to activate
    support for XP. There is problem when going out from sleep mode. Each
    time CPU fan doesn't work after that. Ibm gives only set of files for a
    flopy disk, bootdisk. But when I try to run updtflsh.exe, it works only
    till it is begining to flash chip. Then it says "Memory cannot be
    allocated". I tried some tricks with himem.sys, emm386.exe,
    dos=high,umb but nothing works, even changing command.com to this from
    bootdisk (by the way there is still usuall menu when pressing F8, where
    is it hidden?).Does anyone know how to do this?
