What does 'preserve runtime configuration' mean when flashing the BIOS?

  • My two APU4D4s are currently on BIOS 4.13.0.4 and working fine, but I see that there have been some important fixes in the 4.14.x series. While reviewing the upgrade instructions, there is a note about 'preserving the runtime configuration' during the flashrom process when using 4.14.0.1 and later.


    What does this mean, and more importantly, what must I do instead if I'm not currently on 4.14.0.1 or later?
