Exclamation Bios Versions Enhancements List - 03-11-2011, 02:06 PM

Hi, Thought my first post should be something useful to hopefully gain some cred' on this fine forum. My Mini 1012 arrives Tuesday.

Past BIOS versions can be selected from Dell's Driver site, just select the latest BIOS to view its details and in there you should see "Other Versions"

Currently there are only 2 versions available for download. (Guess I'm spoiled by business hardware.)

-Support CHM mode of SLP21.
!!!This forum has had multiple occurrences of this BIOS bricking their Mini.

I dont believe in BIOS updates....if everything on your system works...leave it alone...unless you want a real expensive paperweight or doorstop
