DOS/4G and DOS/4GW FAQ:
BIOS Upgrade Errors


[Previous Section] * [Index of FAQ] * [Next Section]
  1. Why am I getting a 'Error 2 - File does not exist' error when I try to update my BIOS?
  2. Why does your BIOS update program AMINF386.EXE return 'Error 2 -- File does not exist' when I run it in DOS?

1. Why am I getting a 'Error 2 - File does not exist' error when I try to update my BIOS?

We don't know, but this seems to happen particularly to people trying to update an AMI BIOS.

Unfortunately, we didn't write the BIOS upgrade program, and have never even run it -- we don't have anything to do with BIOS upgrade programs.

You probably think it is because you are seeing a Tenberry Software or Rational Systems Copyright when you run the program.

However, you are seeing our copyright because whoever wrote your BIOS update program used our DOS extender to access memory outside of the base 640KB, and NOT because we had anything to do with writing the program.

You need to contact your BIOS or motherboard vendor directly.

For AMI, try: http://www.ami.com

For a general site with BIOS upgrades for most BIOS's:, try: http://www.esupport.com


2. Why does your BIOS update program AMINF386.EXE return 'Error 2 -- File does not exist' when I run it in DOS?

First of all, it's not our program.

You probably think it is because you are seeing a Tenberry Software or Rational Systems Copyright when you run the program.

However, you are seeing our copyright because whoever wrote your BIOS update program used our DOS extender to access memory outside of the base 640KB, and NOT because we had anything to do with writing the program.

See the question above for more details.
