BIOS update and fear :O)

Recommended Posts

Even after dozens and dozens of successful flashes on all kinds of machines, the fear of imminent catastrophy & destruction always surfaces from somewhere, maybe over the years ones genes \ DNA got mutated to include digital fear & anxiety as a most basic survival tool :O)

And yes, all well this time too !

Is what it is, if my systems crash because of a bios update and they die, I will get a new one.  Hopefully its my desktop since I can change out the mother board, case and PSU then have a new fully running system again without too much trouble.  If it's ny notebook, then I guess one of the few new systems I am looking at will be ordered.

And survived another one :O) along with a mysterious 'TPM 2.0 firmware update'. Both labeled CRITICAL
Mixing such updates with Bitlocker = suspense until sucessful boot. Got 100% trust in bitlocker itself, but way less in new firmwares' possible implications (and in own deads ...or misdeads lol). Of course got backups of contents and keys ready if anything should ever go overboard.
