Frequent Bios change Dangers

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I know it's best not to change bios unless you need to. I did a bios update change because my clocks were not sticking. The new change has caused some problem with the OS I'm running.

I want to flash backward but will most likely flash forward again after a month or so when I have time to properly trouble shoot.


My question is: How likely is it that I will brick the BIOS if I change back and forth a few times (Taking time to do it very carefully using the Asus flashback method) My board is a P8z77-v LE plus.

If it allows you to go back and forth, then the only chance of failure I know of is if there's a power failure in your house during the installation of the BIOS.

When I had the EP45-UD3P, I probably changed the BIOS over a hundred times in a span of a month or two because I was playing around with it because it was a new and exciting toy. I had no problems with that and it's a relatively old motherboard, so that's why I said that if the P8Z77-V LE Plus allows you to go back and forth, then it should be fine as long as you always do it correctly.
