There's code somewhere of course, but no program to run. I just put the
update file on a USB stick and hold down a key while booting. The code
runs direct from the motherboard, there's no operating system
requirement, it's a very civilized system.
Yes, I plug the stick in too, but I hope you'd already worked that bit
The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody
appreciates how difficult it was.
