Thread: upgrading processor

  1. Default

    Hi moonman!

    Thanks for your reply. But I donīt get it:


    i donwloaded this software, burnt the ISO on a CD like noted in the instructions, and put it into my TECRA DVD Drive.

    Then I changed the boot priority in my BIOS from HDD to CD.

    But the system doesnīt boot from CD; even when I press "c" while booting. The CD runs for a few seconds, then I see the Windows start picture and I am on my windows desktop. No chance to boot the ISO from CD...

    What the hell is that now? Can you help me? Thanks in advance for feedback!

    Looks like you either have a bad burn or your cd is not recognized in time. Is the cd readable in windows? If yes, you can try going into bios for a minute, wait until the cd is recognized, then exit discarding the changes.

    Also no need having the old bios, update to the latest. Maybe there is a bug in the old one.

Does anyone know of anything else i can do?
    No one seems to have helped this guy out. I had exactly the same problem as this guy. I managed to sort it out by using and older version of the pom file. For people struggling to work they should try the following three files when booting.

    http://www.stormpaintball.com/toshiba/pm765.bin (this one is a last ditch attempt).

    Apart from that wanted to thank everyone on this thread wholeheartedly, really helped resurrect my laptop. This is what I did I've written it on another forum.

    You need to try a different CD or make of CD, some computers can get iffy, also did you burn it at the slowest speed? The best way I managed to do rather archeaically was to get an external floppy drive and boot from the floppy.

    Make sure you try several files as some may be incompatible as I found out here there are.

    Hello, following the instructions on this forum I have been able to upgrade 3 different M200's to 2.0 Dothan's without any problem. This and 2 gb of ram make this a good little tablet. The question I have is has anyone made the 2.1 Dothan's (400 mhz ) work? If so how? I have 2 chips sitting around and tried one in an M200 with no success. I read earlier that someone did using the pm765.bin file but I need instructions on how he did this. Thanks in advance for any help.

    I upgraded my M200 the other day to a 2.1 GHz Pentium M 765. Pretty sweet. Here's how I did it (stole this from Semberger in another thread):
    1) Download pom200t1.ima: http://www.stormpaintball.com/toshiba/pom200t1.IMA
    2) Download pm765.bin: http://www.stormpaintball.com/toshiba/pm765.bin
    3) Format a floppy disk. Do not use quick format.
    4) Extract pom200t1.ima to a floppy. Verify that the files extracted OK.
    5) Copy pm765.bin to the floppy. If possible, use a checksum calculator to verify file integrity.
    6) Boot your system from the floppy (instructions are all over the place - except you're NOT going to select option #2.
    7) Instead, press Shift-F5 (on bottom of page).
    8) At the DOS prompt, type:
    chgmc /cf pm765.bin
    then press Enter.

    Follow the on-screen prompts, and enjoy the fast M200 experience!
