Bios Save & Restore Utility For Floppy Disc
I have a friend whos bios just became corrupted/infected and lost his lap top because of it. My pc is running absolutely fine, though I would like to take precautionary methods just in case I ever have to flash my bios one day.
I have the only available version of my bios which is the same current version I use, stored on a floppy disc. In the event that I ever have to flash my bios I have the floppy to flash it. But that url link above is a utility for my exact pc as well. Supposedly it can save my bios settings and restore them on another pc which is the exact same model as mine. I believe they made this for buisness purposes.
As a precautionary method I'm starting to wonder if I can use this utility to save my bios settings the way they are now, in case I ever want to restore them. (ie: a kid messes around pressing buttons, I accidentally change something, I have to flash my bios, etc)
If this is a good idea I will do this now and always keep this disc on hand. I'm asking for professional advice because I do not want to tinker with my bios...
Do you all think this is a good idea? That way I can have the floppy disc in my possession with my best bios settings on it. Problem is the url link I've provided metions that it is for use when you want to copy bios settings from one exact model pc to another. It says nothing about restoring your own bios settings. (ie: copying your own bios settings and using them for a later bios setting restore on your own pc)
