Hi. I have a PcChips 810LR mobo with an American Megatrends Award Bios and the Mobo's support software CD includes a BIOS UPDATE UTILITY which allows me to update the BIOS file on the mainboard. Does this utility cum driver mean that I can install an updated bios from the PCChips website straight to the bios via my OS as one would do with a normal driver install or does the utility simply enable me to update the bios via the normal BIOS updating method involving the floppy disc etc.
I appreciate this is probably a very basic question but I just to not understand the purpose and meaning of this utility and I would be most grateful if someone would explain its purpose. Thanks in anticipation.
Thanks AJZCHIPS. So just to clarify this, am I to assume that without that Utility I would not be able to update the BIOS at all or is that utility just a means of making an update possible. ? Any more advice would be appreciated.
