Anybody seen these BIOS?

Recommended Posts

So you guys think its not safe to flash those?

Of course it's safe in the sense that the system is constructed to have this option. What they trying to tell you is that there's no meaning in just changing BIOS for the fun it. You do that when you have certain problems or issues to solve, for example with the compability of a specific memory module or that a BIOS is specialized to optimize the settings for a specific CPU.

 

If you're systems works good and you haven't identified a specific problem, it might even mean you risk to get a whole lot of extra work in getting the new BIOS to do what you could with the first one.

 

The safest way - at least in my view - is to use the method of flashing from a floppy. Maybe old school, but it does what you want.

 

Edit: some ot those BIOS:s you'll find at the official DFI homepage. Otherwise look at this thread, which gives an idea of some differencies:

Good word there "KimTjik"...

 

For those that have been in computering for a while we can or I can remember the "warning'' on all bios download sites that said> "If the bios does not specifically address your issue; DO NOT FLASH". Then Nforce came and it took forever to debug the chipset and bios flashing became computering's national past-time. Yet the warning should still be there and in some cases it is. Bios flashing is not for fun and has withit all of the possibilities for error that were there 2 years ago.
