How to create dosboot image for grub for updating bios

I always having the issues during updating bios under linux/ubuntu.

All bios updaters developed by vendors for processing under DOS/Windows, but very small amount of them have thoughts about linux users.
I have written article about using flashrom application for updating bios in ubuntu/linux(in ukrainian), but it is not universal and has limited support of devices.

Here I want to share ability to have boot image item in grub with freedos installed for making possible boot into and update bios for Your mobo.



Install linux on everex stepnote sa2053 - boot options

Press F6, escape to close the pop-up window, and add
reserve=0xFFB00000,0x100000
to the prompt, before the word "quiet".
Complete the installation process



MYSQL fix duplicates saving duplicated data with new id

DROP PROCEDURE `max_wid`;
DELIMITER ;;
CREATE PROCEDURE `max_wid` (OUT `y` int)
SQL SECURITY INVOKER
BEGIN
SELECT MAX(wid) into y from works;
END;;
DELIMITER ;
DELIMITER ;;
CREATE PROCEDURE `first_dup` (OUT `t` int)
SQL SECURITY INVOKER
BEGIN
SELECT wid into t FROM works GROUP BY wid HAVING ( COUNT(wid) > 1 ) LIMIT 0,1;
END;;
DELIMITER ;

The procedure itself - finding first duplicated data - and updating it to maximum possible id
After running this code till ZERO duplicates just create unique Primary key for Your table

Вірус - Відправ СМС. Ручне вбивство.

Windows Xp Professional RU
При завантаженні, ще до появи робочого стола відкривається чарівне віконечко з проханням "заплатітє за использование еротических ресурсов" а ля "трєбуйєцца мзда".
Ясне діло, що антивірус - безсилий, інакше ця стаття не з'явилась би.
Правда файли тіла віруса вже відправлені Comodo та McAfee - так що вирішення проблеми існує.
Полазивши трошки "шляхами віруса" я знайшов його модифікацію, яку DrWeb Online Checker визначив як Trojan.Winlock.591

Trojan.Winlock.591

Щоправда активним був не цей вірус, а його модифікація, на яку сканер не реагував...
Як побороти...
