those aren't alternative solutions to the original problem. the person
needs to run a windows app to upgrade the bios. if it ran under linux,
then they'd just run it right on the installed OS and not need to boot
knoppix. the PE stuff is the windows concept/version of knoppix (e.g. a
"LiveCD" version of windows) which is why it solves the original
problem.
