A colleague of mine recently bought a probook 4320s notebook and tried to update the bios as the cpu fan did not slow down. I thank all the contributors of how-to's regarding the issue of failed bios flashes. When the download was completed, I got a dialog box which explained what is to happen and gave me the option to save the contents to the flash drive. Problem is that when I navigate through the utility to the file stored on a flash drive, it doesn't show the file. I rubbed a rabit's foot for roughly 20 of those 30.
