Why you should Update D8200's BIOS (Sometimes) - My original BIOS was A01. If I hadn't updated it to A09, I wouldn't be using a 250GB hard drive today.
Dell Dimension 8200 Hyperthreading BIOS, A09 - From here. Absolutely useless with the i850 version but useful with the i850E. Special Note: It has been stated here that it will work with the P4 3.06GHz Hyperthreading CPU only.
