  • Hi,

    Upgrade BIOS is not related to Windows 7. Please get detail information from your computer manufacturer.

  • Since there is no Windows 7 support for your model, you may have a real problem updating the BIOS (the latest is F.58A 2008-07-08). The only fix/enhancement listed for it is support for the AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter.

    Here's the link to it:

    You could try running it, but if it messes up, you're pretty much hosed (technical term ;-0 ).

    Why do you feel you need to update the BIOS?
