Flashing a BIOS isn’t as easy as installing a normal software update.
BIOS updates aren’t big software upgrades that add new features, security patches, or performance improvements.
BIOS updates typically have very short change logs – they may fix a bug with an obscure piece of hardware or add support for a new model of CPU.
