The thing is that here in Australia we rarely see the mobo with the original BIOS's as these generally go the the US, Japan and parts of Europe first as this is where the quick buck is made plus problems are usually sorted out by the time us 2nd and 3rd tier countries get their deliveries. The 2 that I've used now have both done the change without probs but they have come with the latest BIOS already onboard.
