Hi:

 

Since you are running W10 on there, you don't want to update the BIOS beyond v02.28 or you will have a long delay on restarts.

 

See this discussion...

Here is how to install v2.28 without being in Windows...

You're very welcome.

 

Yes, I have two 8200 Elite CMT's both running W10 Pro, v1809 and both on BIOS v.02.28.

 

Just don't flash the BIOS using the WIndows based flash because it was only written to be run in one of the supported operating systems.

Latest System BIOS firmware version should be J01 v02.32 by now (important update)

Also, I suggest your replace your 2x 4GB dimm memory stick for 2x 16GB ones instead. (make sure to pick ones that respect this machine's requirement tho)
