To install a new microcode update, however, the motherboard BIOS must contain the routines to support the microcode update, which virtually all Pentium Pro and Pentium II BIOSes do have.The easiest method for checking the microcode update is to use the Pentium Pro and Pentium II processor update utility, which is developed and supplied by Intel.This utility can verify whether the correct update is present for all Pentium Pro processor-based motherboards.Table 3.18 contains the current microcode update revision for each processor stepping.These update revisions are contained in the microcode update database file that comes with the Pentium Pro processor and Pentium II processor update utility.
