I have MS Win 10 Pro 64-bit, running on my newly custom built workstation computer from www.ps.no and am about to upgrade my UEFI on my ASRock Z170 EXTREME7+ LGA1151 motherboard, however since ASRock assumes no responsibility for any damages caused by improper operations of downloading or updating the BIOS (quoted from their home page), I want to make sure that I am doing this 'right', therefore I have some questions in this context;
Due to various outdated and incompatible drivers and utilities (that is only Win 8.1 ready), I have unfortunately had to reinstall my OS several times , and as such I decided to switch from the primary BIOS to the secondary BIOS for safety reasons, assuming that it somehow got corrupt (I could be wrong) .
This motherboard has two BIOS chips, a primary BIOS (BIOS_A) and a backup BIOS (BIOS_B ), which enhances the safety and stability of your system. Normally, the system will work on the primary BIOS. However, if the primary BIOS is corrupted or damaged, just flip the BIOS Selection Switch to “B”, then the backup BIOS will take over on the next system boot. After that, use “Secure Backup UEFI” in the UEFI Setup Utility to duplicate a working copy of the BIOS files to the primary BIOS to ensure normal system operation. For safety issues, users are not able to update the backup BIOS manually. Users may refer to the BIOS LEDs (BIOS_A_LED or BIOS_B_LED) to identify which BIOS is currently activated.
Considering what is highlighted in red, would it be wise to do what is highlighted in blue before flash updating the UEFI from a USB Flash Drive?
I have UEFI version 1.40, but version 2.50 is available for download, and I have already downloaded it to my USB Flash Drive. I am awaiting your recommendations...
