Do NOT try updating the motherboard's BIOS unless you are fixing a specific
problem that the new BIOS version solves. Updating the BIOS is a good way
to possibly inactivate an otherwise good motherboard.

Do both. BIOS today and driver day after tomorrow.

Nonsense.

Only for cretins.

Ron, you are completely correct, pretty rare these days to have any problems
flashing firmware of any kind as long as it is the correct firmware for the
hardware.

Exactly. Pay attention, get the right version, wait for Ivan to pass then
flash.

A major issue that keeps being skipped is that new BIOS versions usually
contain much more than what they spec like later CPU microcode. Get the
latest for all the unseen reasons and stay current.
