i have a 203966-001 board and got the bios from hp as my new cpu had a microcode error
i put the bios onto a cd and placed the file onto my desktop
it started to install and then it will ask for a floppy in drive A
but i dont have a floppy drive

It looks like you will either have to contact HP or use an external floppy drive that plugs into a USB port. The external drives frequently come with laptop computers. If you don't have one, you might be able to find a friend that has one. If you have to buy one, these drives are not very expensive.

well i have like 10 internal floppys--but my psu does not support it so i will need to buy an adapter
