Tried to upgrade the BIOS through the operating system (Vista 64bit) it gave me
This driver has been blocked from loading!!
although i ran it as administrator!!
I can't do the ISO image installation as i don't have a floppy and I don't have the software that creates a bootable CD for that image.
When i tried to create a bootable CD with Roxio 2009 it asked me for a Bin file that i don't have!! & dindn't ask for the BIOS upgrade ISO file.

the .exe file isn't 64-bit compatible. that's why it won't run.
the ISO is your only option under a 64-bit OS. ISO Recorder is free and will burn the image. i've been using it for years on BIOS ISO images without a problem. try to use 8x or slower media if possible. CDR or CDRW is fine.

Did you get the SLI working?
I'm trying SLI with 2 gtx 275 cards in thinkstation s20 with EVGA SLI connector.
I could not see SLI enable option enabled in nvidia control panel!

i didn't upgrade the Bios yet, trying to make a bootable BIOS update CD, it's a bit hectic to make it the old fashion way through a bootable disk. probably got used to windows BIOS update
i'll post the result as soon as i manage to create this disk & update my BIOS to the latest version.

Sounds like my hopes on making SLI work in S20 is dwindling.
I don't see such option in S20 BIOS.
I already placed my GTX 275 for sale in ebay.
I might buy ATI 4870 X2 and forget SLI.
