    I've been re-reading through my mobo manual and have found something interesting (in my oppion.) Under Bios Flashing [method 3] there is a program on a disc [provided by Gigabyte] that will autodownload the newest bios version [just need to select which mobo I am using] and it will auto update the bios for me. Do all mobos have this? Can I trust this method? Oh my mobo is a Gigabyte 8PE667Ultra

    well all mobos dont have this feature, but it should be safe if its provided by the mobo manufacturer :thumb: Anyways the worst that can happen is ull have to flash ur bios the old-fashioned way ;)

    I would not do it either.

    If I had 100 identicle computers, and it worked on the first one, I might do it just for ease.

    Clearly, any competent mobo company isn't about to host files that ruin their costomer's hardware, and our only point is, is that it is more prone to go wrong, than a standard BIOS update.

    Yeah, but my floppy is USB (don't know if it would work with a bios upgrade) and it worked so I'm happy
