It is an official BIOS, just like A03 that I had a while back. I flashed my mini and there were no problems. It has not been released to the support website yet, but it will be. You can wait for it if you want.

Brynden,

What exactly is the VGA issue? Is this a fix that means we won't have to use Astray to keep the resolution from changing during boot?

Thanks,

LibbyLA

I am not really sure. I can try to get some more info. The best bet would be for someone who has the issue to flash this bios and see if it goes away.
