BIOS Update in wine

Hi,

Has anyone tested a BIOS update utility using wine, and is it even possible? I know that it is dangerous to run a BIOS update through wine, but I'm just curious as to whether it is even possible or not.

I'm pretty sure that it isn't possible.
What motherboard is this?


No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

It is a laptop motherboard, so I'm not sure. I probably won't try it, though.

Which laptop model then? Most modern UEFIs  should allow you to dump and load an update from your ESP partition without an operating system involved.
