    Indeed I do have a floppy drive & disk; although after visiting the Gigabyte Websight and reading further into flashing my BIOS it needs me to enter the BIOS menu. The Award BootBlock is prohibiting me form entering the BIOS menu. I don't have "Dual BIOS" & "Q-Flash" needs me to be in the Menu. Catch 22 type thing.
