If it ain't broke, Jesse, don't fix it. :) That said, although a BIOS upgrade is scary, it's not really all that hard to do.

Bottom line, though, is that an update of your BIOS will not give you UEFI. You'll still have Legacy BIOS.

So, unless it becomes necessary for a concrete reason, don't bother with the BIOS.
I and other professional Computer Tech's have been crying this from the rooftops for 30+ years.
"If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it". I can only guess, at just how many motherboards have been borked, by some untrained person trying to upgrade their Bios. It's likened to a car mechanic trying to perform a heart transplant.

Yesterday, I installed Windows 10 TP, 10041 on a little eMachine close to ten years old, with a standard Bios.
It has an AMD, Sempron (bottom of the line) single core CPU, on a SATA I motherboard, with only 2GB of DDR ram.
That's about as lame as you can get, in today's computer world.
I AM using a Seagate 500GB SATA II hard drive, jumpered down to SATA I speed.

That little PC has been running Windows 8.1/32 for a while, with NO problems, so I figured it would probably run Windows 10/32, 10041 as well. It does!

Like Windows 8.1, Windows 10 is very compatible with older hardware. The hardware driver package that comes with both OS's is very compatible with older hardware. I'm not by any means a Microsoft fanboy, but, I tip my hat to MS for their diligence in providing us with a great package of hardware drivers. That will breath new life into millions of older PC's.

Having to buy a new computer for every new OS, should become a thing of the past.

Cheers Mates! It's SPRING!
