    Updating the BIOS should be avoid as much as possible, because if anything happens to make it fail (ie power surge) then your computer is toast. The hard drive your replacing, is it the same size as the new one or is it significantly larger/smaller?

    It would help if you posted the Model number of the motherboard.
