emachines EL1200-05W BIOS

I have an old emachines EL1200-05W, XP SP3, 500GB HD, working as a file server. I'd like to upgrade the BIOS in order to install a newer OS. I need to flash the BIOS and have downloaded the needed files. Trying to run the BAT file doesn't work. Trying to run the AWFLASH exe file doesn't work. Burning to a CD doesn't work because it's not bootable. Could this be one of those old machines that needs a jumper reset in order to flash the BIOS? I'm stumped. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm guessing you need to make yourself a bootable CD-r? Have a look at the instructions here: »forums.mydigitallife.info/thread···Flashing

Thanks. Don't need the instructions, but would need how to compose an autorun inf. I'll work on that idea. Thanks.
