When a bios update is only available via .exe, what's the easiest way to update the bios on a computer running Linux exclusively?
Many times I've had to install Windows 10 onto a computer just long enough to do a bios update.
I'm not aware of any version of windows that would allow me to boot from a thumb drive, dvd, or cd. Also, I've never figured out how to install windows onto an external hard drive unless the PC has an eSATA port.
Maybe wine can install a bios.exe upgrade, but I'm apprehensive to try it on such a critical task.
I wish Windows 10 had a "LIVE CD" like most Linux distributions offer. Maybe I can boot with DOS, but it is 2019 and I'm not sure that still works on modernly created EXEs.
