When trying to update the BIOS of your system, you may experience the Windows Configuration Error.


Details
If you have already UPGRADED the BIOS of the computer in the past, you will not be able to update it again, unless you boot from a Floppy or USB drive to do so. This is due in part, to a Registry value that is written, that lets the system know that it has had a BIOS update.
If this is the case, you will receive the following Error.

 

-------------------------------------------
Dell System DXP061 BIOS Flash 2.5.0
