    I have used the Toshiba support download page to identify my model A205-S4629 Satellite laptop and downloaded the following BIOS update utility sa200f0v520.exe.

    After building the IOS install disk and running the Phoenix Phlash16 utility I get the following message "File has different BIOS part number".

    The utility is using the following image file MW10M520.ROM.

    Any input is appreciated,

    Thanks,

    Hi

    As far as I know the BIOS package downloaded from the Toshiba US driver page contains the WinRAR 32-bit self-extracting ZIP file which includes both Windows-based and diskette based BIOS update installation options.

    Did you try to update the BIOS using Win-based BIOS?

    What OS do you use?

    I have the same issue with Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 with Model No: PSAF0U-02D009. I have already updated to version 1.90 but tried updating to the latest BIOS version seem impossible both on Window-based and through CD-ROM based both proofed abortive. When i tried updating in windows i got this ERROR message "Write error in the file sa200f0v520.iso. Probably the disk is full". AND when i used a CD-ROM to update BIOS, i got stuck with the following CD-ROM Installation error "File has different part number"

    Any suggestion is highly appreciated.
