Thanks for the info. I'll update the BIOS. The other references you gave like "-0262 Fixed slow boot ti---" appear to be references to archived posts.

Click on the link in my first post. There's a link on that page called Release Notes (pdf), that's where you can see what has been updated/changed BIOS to BIOS.
