Default Preferred BIOS - 03-08-2010, 12:08 AM

What is the consensus of the best BIOS for Mini 9 Hackintoshing?

I just got a "new" one and it has A05. I see a lot of people here on A04.

Mini 9 / 2 GB RAM / 64 GB RunCore / No WWAN / Camera / OSX 10.6.7 + NBI 2010061621212351

My 9 and the 10 I set up for my brother both at A06 and both behave nicely.
