If you reformatt, you only need to install Windows if that's what you mean. I reformat every 6-12 months and all I do is after the format reinstall Windows, install all the relevant drivers etc and that's it. I can't think of anything else you need to do.

flashing the bios is not that necessary if the purpose is just to setup back the PC to its original settings. just leave the bios with its main contents...that's how it is...:-)
