upgrading BIOS

okym05okym05 Member Posts: 6 ■□□□□□□□□□
I have been studying for the Core exam for a couple of weeks, and I took some practice exams and read a textbook. I got 2 questions icon_sad.gif "What is the most important thing before upgrading BIOS?" "What do you have to determin before upgrading Pentium III to Pentium 4?" Does anyone know what the answers are?
Thanks

    Turn off antivirus software before upgrading the BIOS.

    Make sure the motherboard supports the P4 processor.

    The most important thing to do before flashing the BIOS, is to back it up. Turning off AV software won't help you when you try to flash it and it screws up. You're then left with a dead machine. icon_wink.gif

    I remember something in the practice exams i did saying the most important thing was making sure u had the right one. I know it sounds really obvious, but it makes sense..

    1. Backup
    2. read instructions from MFG site on FlashingBIOs

    'i' before 'e' except after 'c'.... weird?
