HOW TO USE: 1. Obtain a formatted 1.44-MB diskette. 2. Download the SoftPaq to a directory on your hard drive and change to that directory. The file that is downloaded is an executable with a file name based on the SoftPaq Number above. 3. From that drive and directory, execute the downloaded Spxxxx file to unpack the ROM image files. You will be prompted to insert the formatted diskette in a drive to create the diskette. 4. After the diskette has been created, you may delete the SoftPaq file downloaded in step 2. 5. Keeping the newly created diskette in the A: drive, cycle system power to boot from the ROMPaq diskette. 6. Follow the on-screen instructions to select the 08/21/99 Compaq System ROM or the Language Module option and flash the firmware.
