    Default Bios Flash

    Does the latest bios version contain the updates from all the previous versions. I think I skipped F4. Everything works great but this questions nags me to no end.

    Yes they should. (Unless it is a Special bios made for something special or a one time event.) If your board has F1 installed and F5 is out. yes you can update from F1 to F5 skipping the others.

    Now if you have F1 and you update to F5 and skip the ones in between it is highly suggested you update the back up bios. Should be "ALT" + "F12" This will make the main and back-up bios the same version F5.

    Now lets say F6 comes out and for what ever reason you do not like or something gets corrupt and the system has trouble booting you can press "CTRL" +"F12" and that will copy the back-up bios to the main bios.

    Users have seen some stability and weird issues when the main and back-up bios do not have the same version installed.
