    Question How do you disable onboard LAN on Asrock B450 Pro4 ?

    I've looked all over the Bios menus and I can't find the option to turn it off. I'm not new to computers or Bios interfaces and despite being completely sober at the time, I couldn't find it. Does anyone have a similar B450 Asrock board and can tell me the path to that option?

    Question What does updating the bios of an Asus TUF Plus get me?

    What data is stored on the motherboard?

    I have installed Windows 10 on my desktop PC. My question is: Does Windows 10 store any data in the UEFI or motherboard itself, and if yes, what kind of data? I'm asking this because I'm looking to format my system as completely and thoroughly as possible. How should one go about this?
