    I ordered in another BIOS chip for him and inserted it as I couldn't find a suitable one for a loan for a hot fix. :smokin:

    I've never stuffed up a BIOS upgrade, and I'm pretty unlucky..... so it's probably advisable to DIY (providing you have a reliable power source). I just avoid flashing BIOS chips at 6AM and 10PM (when the heavy industry gets turned on in my neighbourhood) ;)

    installing any type of software or firmware carries a risk..in that it may not install properly, the difference with a bios flash is that it results in a system that won't boot.
    the solution (as long as your bios is socketed) is to pop in another chip - not really a big deal.

    the "use at own risk" statement is most likely so that the mfg won't have to cover failed bios flashes under warranty :D
