Any BIOS for the  786E1 Family will work on your motherboard.

Does that mean the   3.07 rev a 11oct2011  or  4.02 rev a 14mar2011 should work?

BTW, thanks for the response.

As long as they are for the exact BIOS family that your PC's motherboard has installed they will work.

 

A word of caution about upgrading BIOS. Only upgrade if there is a good reason to update, not just because you can. Many people have bricked their PCs and notebooks because they did not quite understand that. BIOS updating is always a risk. The risk is far less if the PC or notebook has the modern UEFI platform.

This line from my original post, I think it shows the 'family'.
