It is a longtime since I needed some help, but now I do. Recently I built a new computer featuring a gigabyte GA-H77-D3H-MVP motherboard. It is a 1155 board with an Intel T3 CPU.
Was having some trouble with the performance of my scanner and decided to upgrade the BIOS. I have searched the Mint 'Search' but Mint does not like the word BIOS. What I found on
Google was somewhat confusing and I was not able to comprejhend it. The Gigabyte BIOS file is a 7Z exe file and as such of course does not work in Linux. I have solved the problem,
by getting a friend with a Windows OS to unpack the file and email me the files. I have since upgraded the BIOS. I do not use Windows (gave it away many, many years ago).
I am absolutely sure someone in the Linux Mint Community knows how to unpack the 7Zip.exe file and extract the BIOS file without using the Windows OS.
Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in anticipation
