For those of you who are interested, the bios flash can be downloaded and installed. Download, extract the files, and read the readme file to learn how to install the flash update.

Here is the link: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Download

It appears v1.50 has just been posted up. The BIOS changelog looks interesting, which includes some Win7 additions :)

Hi

The NB200-10G isn’t listed on the Toshiba US page so it seems that this update isn’t compatible with yours.

BIOS updates for your model (PLL25E) you can download on the Toshiba European page:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

Bye

I'm not recommending that anyone with a non-US model use this BIOS, but in the Readme it lists functionality for the EU and Japan. So I would expect that the other markets will see this BIOS soon. BTW - On my Windows 7 install I had to create a DOS Boot Thumb drive to flash the BIOS.

Is your model listed here? If so, you could download the file from the US site and install it.

Hello

Yes, that’s true. The NB200 (PLL20E) isn’t compatible with the BIOS update from the Toshiba US page.
Check the posting from Edmund Dorf.

For your notebook you can download BIOS updates here:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

The DOS boot thumb drive sounds interesting, Jeff. How did you create it?

The 1.20->1.60 changelog suggests that it would be a worthwhile upgrade for Linux users. However, the download from Toshiba is just a zipped .exe. Is there something in there that can create a bootable image?

Thanks,
/-sb.
