As PC makers have long stopped making system-built floppy disk drives, booting to a CD drive to flash a new BIOS, or perform system maintenance, is a welcomed convenience.

Download and install Clean Boot CD 2.0, using the link found in the "Reference" section. Remember the installation directory selected during the package extraction.
Add the unpacked Phoenix BIOS update file for the target BIOS version to the folder "CDs\clean\bootdisk\" found under the Clean Boot CD 2.0 installation directory selected in step 1.
Insert a blank CD into your CD-ROM drive, once you complete customising the "CDs\clean\bootdisk\" folder.
Run the command "build-clean.cmd" provided by Clean Boot CD 2.0 to build your ISO image and burn a bootable image to your blank CD.
Boot the PC or laptop targeted for BIOS upgrade using the CD created in step 4. Ensure that the CD-ROM is selected as a boot device and is listed before the hard-drive in the boot order.
