The update works flawlessly, anyone figgure out what it fixed or does yet? I figgure its probably just to prepare for the upcoming release of bulldozer

Well I just updated via AI Suite II. Scared the crap out of me when my computer locked up during the flashing LOL. I guess that's just how it reflashes during windows. It cleared itself up shortly after and the progress bar continued on its merry way

Update worked but it screwed my Linux install on my second SSD (which is my primary boot device before the choice menu), can't boot to Linux anymore.

For those that update via the software or in the OS route, my word of advice, DON'T do it. Update the BIOS using your thumb stick and enter BIOS setup to flash. *Make sure your settings are set to default, i.e. put your overclocks back to stock, voltages at stocks, etc.*

Hope this helps everyone.
