Can one flash the bios of a motherboard to that of a different, but similiar motherboard? example : same brand, same chipsets, but deluxe version? p4p800 to a p4p800 deluxe or something like that?

I woulden't do it. It just screams disaster to me. Flashing the Bios isn't something you hould do all the time, it should only be done if you have to do it. Like if your upgrading the processor, and the motherboard will not accept it as the bios is now. i advise against updating the BIOS just becasue an update is available

If you really must, use Asus own software 'AsusUpdate'. That will pick the right version for you and if your board supports dual bios etc it shouldnt be too problematic.

good advice do yourself a favor and don't screw with the bios unless you need to. they generally only are for newer processor support. sometimes for bios overclocking, but they generally tell you what the update includes.

Noone has actually answered your question yet, the answer is yes, with problems. The reason some motherboards have better software like deluxe, is because they have diffrent hardware. The deluxes hardware is better set to handle the software while the other lower class non deluxe one is not. It would be like putting Windows Xp On a amd k-7 with 128 mb of ram and expecting it to run smoothly.
