    Exclamation cannot shadow the bios

    when i go into my cmos setup utility(AWARDbios setup utility), I try to shadow the bios, but for some reason it is not an option throughout the tabs. there is just basic things like the boot sequence and the date. is there a way to fix this or am i stuck.

    some bios's dont have this option, you can always try to flash the bios with the latest from the manufacturer, but make sure you get the right one, or you will toast your system and it wont work.

    Shadowing the mainboard's BIOS is a setting left over from the ancient days of computing but with later day operating systems this is not only irrelevent but takes up L2 cache space that can be put to much better use.
    The same goes for the shadowing of the video BIOS except here you'll be wasting system memory that can be put to better use.
