    MiK, make sure you note all your BIOS changes before doing an update, as you may lose those settings between BIOS updates.

    Before doing the BIOS flash I recommend setting Restore Defaults / F10 reboot/power off before booting into BIOS/Windows to start the BIOS update.

    Then after the BIOS update, Set Defaults again / F10 reboot/power cycle and go into the BIOS to set your personal settings again before going into Windows the first time.

    If you ever flash a new BIOS and find problems, you can revert to an older BIOS release by starting winflash from the cmdline "winflash /nodate" and that will allow flashing an older date/version BIOS over the current BIOS.

    I second what hmscott said.
    Just make sure you on the power adapter before you start the BIOS flash, and above all things don't interrupt the process.
    Just let the BIOS flash run (don't touch it), and your Laptop will shut down automatically after the flash is completely done
    You should be fine after the process, and then you can power on you NB.

    Good luck, and have fun with you new toy.
