    You don't normally need to update the BIOS, just press Cancel, if anything goes wrong while flashing, you could brick your laptop, it's not worth the hassle.

    Dell's do not have a recovery feature if the BIOS is corrupted. The ONLY option is to replace the motherboard.

    Windows 8 will install most needed drivers. You will probably need the Dell supplied sound driver for full functionality as Windows will install the basic function HD Audio Codec. There may be others, but only install what is actually needed. If a device works OK there is no need for any Dell driver.

    Is the machine an Inspiron N4110 (aka 14R)?

    What's your existing BIOS version? (You may have to turn off "quiet" boot mode in the BIOS settings.)

    You shouldn't need to update the BIOS to install Win8, unless Dell requires it. (The Dell BIOS updater is relatively safe. You launch it from Windows, but the utility reboots the PC, and runs from a non-Windows environment.)

    If you need to install drivers, you can delete the installers after you've used them. You don't need to save the downloads or the folders they may create at the top level of c:.
