big red ERROR regarding recovery.dat


After upgrading BIOS to latest (220), the recovery didn'tn show the big red ERROR regarding recovery.dat. (on an ASUS K70IO)

I copied BIOS to an USB stick. Pressed F4 at boot - upgraded bios, rebooted, and now there was a real recovery choice after some "loading files"..
