System BIOS updates for Intel® Desktop Boards
A reference VBIOS and VBIOS TSR (Terminate and Stay Resident) program is included in the ZIP format graphics drivers. These files are intended only for developers of products based on these chipsets.
To use the TSR VBIOS, the ZIP format graphics drivers must be unzipped to a folder on the hard disk (eg. C:\INTEL), the VBIOS ZIP file must be extracted to a folder on the hard disk (eg. C:\INTEL\VBIOS), and a line (eg. C:\INTEL\VBIOS\d81x2553) must be added to the AUTOEXEC.BAT file that runs the TSR at startup. Please note that this TSR will not work with operating systems that do not support TSRs, such as Windows* XP, 2000, Me, or NT*.
