    I don't know how in the UEFI bios, but in the older Bios types you could press F9 and that would give you your boards information and there it would tell you what both your Bios's were.

    if the board is brand new and you have not flashed it yet, then expected it to be at the same level.

    though F9 has been used for 2-3 socket types and even in AMD boards... I don't think it would be different on the new UEFI bios.

    Backup BIOS version DID NOT display in BIOS and NO any software can detect.
    If you forget shipping BIOS version,then type ALT+F10 (before post) and flash your Backup BIOS with Main BIOS.

    Edit:
    boards from UD3H and above has BIOS dual switch,so any time can switch.

    My Backup BIOS is F12g.
    F9 in BIOS:

    ah, that's odd. ok, my x58, P45 and AMD (790 and 890) boards show both Bios's in the F9 windows... unless the new method somehow has the bios disconnected from each other...

    Only if you "damage" your main bios and recover from backup...
