Thank you for the summarization. That's the point I'm trying to make. You can initiate a BIOS flash in several different ways, but the actual process of the flashing is always done the same way....outside of the OS.

DeconFrost you're just arguing to be arguing. The facts are there, whether you agree or not.

First you say there is no such thing "as flashing the BIOS in the Windows environment". When I show you proof, then you change it to why anyone wants to flash in a Windows environment. You're just arguing to argue.

The bottom line is I know what I'm talking about, like it or not.

I'm out.

And I politely explained that you were making a very common mistake in the understanding. I also had someone post to agree, along with some PMs thanking me for explaining the truth. You didn't offer any proof. Your screenshots actually serve as proof of your misunderstanding of the process. It's a common one, but, as you say, facts are facts. If you know what you are talking about and have enough experience to throw it around in a discussion, then surely you'd know what happens after next after the screens you yourself posted.

The primary purpose of this site is for people to get help and proper answers. That involves dispelling misconceptions. Believe what ever you want personally, but keep to the facts when you are posting.

I personally disable System Restore, but I'm smart enough to never advise anyone else to do so. It's my choice, and you'll never find me recommended a person disable it. It wouldn't be right to tell others to do so.

I'm open to further discussion, and I'd gladly try to find the massive thread about the topic, but it seems you've done the equivalent of "taking your ball and going home".

Bottom line is, the flashing is done outside of the OS. Safe, and secure. As further proof, many brands, such as Dell, ONLY offer these Windows loaders for their BIOS upgrades.
