DFI LANParty NFII Ultra B BIOS upgrade

I was looking at upgrading to one of the tictac BIOS's for overclocking reasons. I just wondered if I would have to reinstall the OS afterward, as I have to reinstall anyway but I was going to do it on the standard BIOS tonight, then bring that BIOS chip into work along with a spare one I have to have the BIOS copied over (just to be on the safe side in case tictac one goes wrong), then install the tictac bios tomorrow evening and keep the spare chip safe.

Otherwise, i'll just be patient and wait until tomorrow evening after i've copied the BIOS to then flash with the new one and install the OS.

Everything rides on top of the BIOS, I think it's a good idea to wipe your HDD, create new partitions, re-format them, then install the operating system of your choice.

I say this because I got the most amusing errors after installing a new mainboard with its new BIOS, and using the old HDD that was already in the machine. Some of the errors were truly funny!

Thanks cloasters, guess i'll just have to be patient - unless it's easy enough to get the files to hard flash the BIOS chip using the machine here at work if it gets corrupted ? I know it's a different file to the one that you flash with awardflash. What do you think? I'm mega impatient to get my machine working again and I don't think i'll get the chance to do it until Saturday if I don't do it this evening. I'm missing UT2004 & DoW :-(
