I have an old Tabled PC Acer TMC302Xmi, and playing with the bios update I tried to downgrade the BIOS to version 1.08 (Just to see if that would fix a problem when trying to boot from a usb memory), but that converted my laptop in a very nice brick. It was not possible to update the BIOS in the ways suggested by the official Acer support, because the laptop was unable to boot.
To solve this problem you must have to perform a BIOS flash update via the Boot Block function, which is documented in http://support.acer-euro.com/documents/reports/bootblock.html, but to create the installation floppy disk you have to use the files and instructions available at http://www.math.lsu.edu/~pjara/travelmatec300/.
