Today I made a really dumb error- I flashed my BIOS while having the Alienware driver disc in the CD drive, causing the bios update to go weird. Alienware telephone support was able to help me fix it quickly, just a setting change in the BIOS page from Legacy to UEFI.

Now, I updated to the A07 BIOS. Alienware support told me to leave it as it is and not update further.
Do I need the latest BIOS to install a Gtx 970? I think the new BIOS version is A14?

Yeah I'm still under warranty so I called the Alienware hotline and they had me fix it with a simple setting adjustment.
