  • What BIOS version should I flash to?

    Allrighty. First post on this site, I'm impressed with the site overall.

    Anyways: ABIT NF7-M v1.0; Takin' a peek at the BIOS upgrade page,
    and I just can't decide if i need the latest (Rev. 28), or the newest
    one that doesn't say:
    " This BIOS version is for NF7 & NF7-S Revision: 1.0~1.2 only! "

    I'm stumped as to if my board falls into this category with its 1.0
    branding, or if it falls into the Rev. 20 category
    "Released Date: 2003-07-14")

    If someone could offer some insight for my lil' dilemma, I'd be forever thankful~!

    The newest bios revision is the smartest choice. What bios revision are you using now? Is there a reason why you want a different bios revision than the one you are currently using?

      I'm using BIOS Rev. 20, and I want to upgrade... because. Well, I guess that the ideology of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies here. I don't really have a reason to update the bios except to be up-to-date. I guess I'll just forget about it ~_^

      <table valign="top" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="613"> <tbody><tr bgcolor="#eeeeee"><td bgcolor="#cad5be" height="25" valign="middle" width="463"> NF7-M BIOS 28</td> <td align="right" bgcolor="#cad5be" valign="bottom" width="150"> <a href=""> <!-- http://--> &#91;img]http://www.abit....gif&#91;/img] </td> </tr> <tr bgcolor="#cccccc"> <td bgcolor="#9fb38a" height="25" valign="middle" width="463"> Version: 28</td> <td align="center" bgcolor="#264d12" height="25" valign="middle" width="150">Released Date: 2004-10-12</td> </tr> <tr valign="top"> <td colspan="2" bgcolor="#ecf1f6" width="613">
      1. This BIOS version is for NF7 & NF7-S Revision: 1.0~1.2 only!
      2. (For Revision 2.0, please click here)
      3. Hid "CPU Disconnect function" default to AUTO.
      4. BIOS compile date: 09/10/2004
      </td></tr></tbody> </table>

      The red text is why I was curious.. Just wondering if the NF7-M applies to "NF7 & NF7-S", because this IS on the NF7-M BIOS page.

      My brain hurts. ~_~
