I just downloaded the latest version of the Shuttle SB51G pc BIOS and cannot find out how to extract the binary file ?
How do I overwrite the existing BIOS ?

Help !!!

Do you have Winzip installed? I'll take a look at the file and see what's going on with it.....:D

Go here and click on (How do I update (flash) BIOS for mainboard) and you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your system to read it.

Adobe is available here.

thanks Speedo, I already checked on the Shuttle site, that's where the binary file comes from...

They say "extract" the bin file, but how ?

Yes I have Winzip, what do you mean by looking at the end of the file ?

Right Click the BIOS file that you downloaded and select Open With. When the caution sign pops up (Assuming your using XP) select open with. Then choose select program from a list. Browse to your Winzip program and click OK. A box should open showing the .bin file and then just extract it to a folder of your choosing. After that you can create your boot disk and whatnot.

Winzip tells me it's a LZH file that needs LHA external program.

I downloaded LHA.exe from different locations and declared the right path in WinZip, but I cannot made it work.
Get the message that the path is too long (probably DOS program) moved LHA.exe to A: drive, tried again, same problem.

I think I didn't get the right LHA program ?

What version of Winzip do you have? You can download the evaluation version of 8.1 here.

I'm going to try and unzip it to a folder and if it works OK I'll PM you.

I know this thread is a bit old but for those who find it through google just use 7zip. It has a command line too so you can extract pretty much anything with it.
