    No harm, as the instant flash method I posted won't flash a DOS or windows file anyway if someone did try.
    I too assume it's an Instant Flash BIOS, but nonetheless .......

    I didn't help but nice you said guy's.

    Windows see's after . so because ASrock called it a .10a, you see 10A file, which does mean it's a instant flash file, remember that a DOS and windows flash are application files and show Application. One runs inside windows and the other runs before windows but run in DOS so it's still a App.

    If it wasn't a instant flash, when you ran instant flash from tools inside the UEFI, it wouldn't find a file to flash if it was a app, it only see's a instant flash file, so you're all set.

    What'dya mean you didn't help?? :)

    I was only poking you for being so quick to state use Instant Flash. That's all.

    Heck, you gave him links and instruction. Didn't help ... my a**. Yes you did.

    Update - So I made a Windows 10 boot UEFI USB through magicISO and Rufus following RAMCity's instructions. I now need to know if there any other things I need to set up in the BIOS to get this SSD to work and boot into windows 10. At this moment I am still waiting for the SM951 to arrive, I will give an update later when I get it attached and set up (fingers crossed it works fine first time!)

    Also, do you reckon I will get full speed with this drive installed,as my motherboard has another PCIe 3 x16 slot available next to GPU. The sm951 can handle up to 4x lanes of pcie 3 as its max to get those 2000MB/s read and 600MB/s wrights. will this mean my GTX760 thats in the first x16 slot will have its bandwidth halfed down to x8 speeds and run slower?

    my cpu is 4670K.

    thanks.
