The manufacturer site has a flash image with a DOS executable. I've looked at appliers for other OS's but they don't like the contents, and the naming convention doesn't match what's documented, so I really must use the EXE in this specific package with the ROM image.

Is there an easy way to get a (Free)DOS prompt with UBCD and then just run this program? I mean, without locating tools to package the exe+datafile, tool to rebuild the superfloppy image, and figure out how to program a menu to get the command line just right without interactive trials. Can't I just, you know, run the file at a prompt?

It's been a while but the last time I did this, I copied the update program and firmware update to a USB drive or the on board hard drive and booted into freedos and ran it with no problems. If your system is BIOS it should work fine. If your system is UEFI all bets are off as I haven't worked on any of those yet.
