Once you have cpqsetup you can use the binary for other BIOS updates.  For example if you can only find the Windows .exe BIOS update you can extract the BIOS file and replace the original file above.


You can use the Windows BIOS file by unzipping the .exe and then copying the actual firmware to the name of the old file from an older Linux flash download (it uses the new file that you give the old name):
