I already have a copy of it. Haven't had time to look at it so far, but I guess the updated the vbios. No idea why it isn't on the Dell site / ftp yet.

You should be able to post attachements as far as I know.

Hmm ok, this needs checking.

Anyways, A10 includes some nice changes, it comes with new SATA drivers, latest Intel IRST option rom, some more updated drivers, apparently some changes for the graphics driver at boot and also some fixes in the setup utility.

Makes me wonder why Dell doesn't upload this. Also why they don't include the latest IRST orom in the M17x R4 / M18x R2 bios...

It was emailed through dell uk support after a threat to request a full refund. Apparently US support still deny its existence.

Worked fine for me with one minor exception. I was using the msata for the OS. After the flash the msata wasnt recognised. I went into the bios and changed raid back to ahci and it booted fine.

You might want to update your IRST drivers, Dell included the latest option rom in this bios (as mentioned above).

If I am on A09 and everything works just fine, do I really need to update to A10? Will it benefit me in any way? Thank you.

Improved Sata drivers and some uefi fixes... if you want to use fast boot then you should update, else do whatever you prefer.

Thank you for your prompt reply. However, I am still unable to download for whatever reason (I think because of the number of posts)... Hopefully the moderator will give me access :D

I just downloaded the A10 from the Dell driver's page. Flashed it and it's up and running. No problems so far.
