So nothing to worry about here guys?
I just forgot that updates were beign installed before last shutdown and went to BIOS like that, but if you say that it was not dangerous at all, then I can be calm about new PC

I'd be more concerned about overclocking which often causes problems.

Oh I do not overclock at all, while not a beast , my pentium G3420 @ 3.2ghz is fully sufficent for me.

Ha okay sorry for the misunderstanding,
It almost read like you though the windows updates would alter your bios and you were confirming if it had or not Oops my bad
Cheers.

So member, can you surely confirm that going to BIOS in next boot after shutdown, in which Win7 installed updates were 100% safe for my system and PC? Going to BIOS/UEFI is something unrelated to system and updates right?
Any explanation from somePC specialist would be great.

Not at all, I just had event like that and would like to know for sure if it was not potentially harmful for windows or PC.
This is almost new PC (+2 month) so I'm a little paranoid about it.

If you haven't changed setting in your bios and Windows 7 got all it updates you should not have any problems.
I would reboot a couple of times then check Windows Updates again to make sure you got all of them.

I personally would wait for the login screen to show up then if you wish restart with the button on the bottom right select restart,

Sometimes major updates don't fully load/ install until regular restart goes to the login screen which happens after the bios window flash

But as stated nothing is a 100% in this world restarts take less than a 15-30 seconds depending on systems not a whole lot of time to be cautious
