Erasmus354 Posted December 19, 2005 Posted December 19, 2005 Ok, I want to update my bios from its current 310 to the 704-2BTA version. I have never flashed a BIOS before and I want to make sure I do everything correct the first time. I also do not have a floppy drive so I want to use the winflash utility. I have tried searching the forum and DFI site and am still a bit confused about certain things. First of all, I would like to keep the current settings that I have, will they be overridden when I flash the BIOS? If so is the best option to write down my current options and then reapply them after flashing the BIOS? I have read the guide to flashing the BIOS included in the winflash download, there are a lot of options I am not sure what to do with. Which options under the Update Option and CMOS Option should I select? Any help/tips on the appropriate steps to take in preparation and after the BIOS flash are greatly appreciated. The reason I want to update the BIOS is I am going to be installing a new Dual Core Opteron. I realise that the Opteron's are not supported by DFI, but does anyone have any additional tips of words of caution for changing processors (I have also never changed the processor on a computer before)?
