Expand list and download USB drive flash package. 2.16MB.

Extract contents to formatted Fat32 USB drive, boot the computer with it. Follow prompts to update, shouldn't need to do anything else command wise.

Can try cd method. Make sure usb is formatted fat32, copy contents over no folders, only root directory. Bios doesn't look in folders. Use only usb2 port to boot from, usb3 if there are won't work.
