  • We do not recommend downgrading the BIOS to an earlier version. An earlier BIOS version might not provide important fixes, critical security updates, or support the latest board revisions currently manufactured.
  • If a BIOS update process is interrupted, your computer might not function properly. Intel suggests the process be done in an environment with a steady power supply (preferably with UPS).
