X51 bios firmware update

  • My X51 was delivered today.  Windows comes up fine but I am hoping to replace it with Linux.  Web searches indicate that there would be problems unless the BIOS is updated to version A02 but where can I find the .exe?  The Alienware sites seem to be out of action right now or simply not responding to connection attempts.  Tried www.alienware.com and support.alienware.co.uk but after 20 minutes still no connection and no timeout either.  Is there another repositoty for the firmware update?

  • Got it!  Thanks carlos.  Strange that several hours of googling did not find that nor did Dell's internal search facility.

  • You are welcome tarazed,
