I'm trying to update the BIOS on my Acer Aspire S7, which is only running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (no Windows), so that its fan would stop being so noisy. I followed the instructions on this person's post.
Specifically, it is an S7 391 and I was attempting to download BIOS version 2.18 which was described as "Improve thermal performance."
I ended up having the exact same problem:
C:\> FLASHIT.EXE ISFLASH.FD Insyde Flash Utility for InsydeH2O Error: This ROM file size isn’t correct. Error: ROM size: 4728c0 Current BIOS size: 100000
I read somewhere that this was often caused by an incorrect BIOS, but I know for fact I have downloaded the right one. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
