Default Re: dual bios

Basically to do this:

"A computer motherboard that contains two BIOS chips, a main BIOS and a backup BIOS. This type of motherboard setup helps a motherboard recover from any issues that may happen during a BIOS update, helps protect the BIOS from any potential virus, and helps with any other issues that may arise related to the BIOS"

I hope this helps

I wouldn't say there is one.
One bios is still kept intact, if you mess with one, so the computer boots up, allowing you to reflash the other.
I kind of like that feature...

Or is this a question as in, you know the answer?
