okay, here's the story.
recently i got a laptop because of a cheap price, i was thinking few days what to do with it and came to a conclusion that since it's useless enough, i'd use it to test out all the latest programs/technology/os/etc. first thing what i need to do is win7 installation, because currently the laptop is biased on win xp sp3. i have win7 cd and so on, though, it doesn't let me install because my bios is out of order (from '07). definitely i downloaded the latest bios, and now here's the problem: it doesn't allow me to install it. it gives me always out the following error:
latitude d630 bios flash a17
an unexpected error occurred while running the flash application. please reboot and try again (i've rebooted multiple times)
application error return: 0x00000403

tried googling the error, came up with no information at all.
any help appreciated.
