      Hi Jody
      Before you reflash your bios take a COPY in case off ??
      Usually the new bios comes with a backup program and make absolutely sure
      that it matches the one you all ready have.

      Normally you can not copy from another machine.

      what do you mean with the NTFS format you will keep the same.
