252mb is not a bios. the asus website posted the Rapid Storage Technology Driver in the bios section. it's a typo. ignore it. bios updates do not come with software. the bios is for the motherboard only. it has nothing to do with Windows period. only flash the bios if you are upgrading your processor or if you experience non-Windows related problems with your computer's operation.

The zip file contains the bios update (2048 K) and the Intel Driver. I assume because of the note on the download, as was already mentioned.

*Note: Update Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology Driver to v10.5.0.1026 to support full HDD capacity.(contained the driver)
It is strange this update is new and the last one was a year ago. But if you are running a RAID setup, it might be relevant.

The bios update is 803, do you know what you are running now? Msinfo32.exe will show you in the System Summary, bios version and date. I am not expressing any opinion as to whether you should update your bios.......your decision.
