  • Ehhh...Does it boot faster? My machine still takes a good 20 secs. to get past the BIOS screen...

  • Having finally managed to download the file, I've flashed the bios of my Aurora but it still says it's version A09.

    Running it again I was still given the option to upgrade from A09 to A10.

    So, either the flashing process has not worked, or the file is the wrong version ?!?!?!?!?!

    Confused

  • i installed A10  lastnight and so far it is running fine,,,,although it did put my command center back to all the defaults so i had to go in and redo my manual settings again..............so far so good.............does seem to boot a little faster...

  • I re-downloaded the file, and re-flashed the bios.

    Now it displays as version A10.....

    .....but, I haven't noticed anything different or any extra options in the bios Huh?

    Anyone know what changes/enhancements have been introduced ?
