So I was installing questionable operating system onto my EEE pc and it required me to downgrade the BIOS which I really am not an expert at. I used a patch and it appeared to work.
Now, I'm paranoid about the downgrade because, honestly, I have no idea where the code came from or what could be in it.
My question, then, is it possible to "start over" completely fresh with my BIOS? As in wipe out the possibly malicious BIOS and go back to the manufacturer-provided one?
Has anyone done something similar to this? I just want to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix to the EEE pc 1000 but I want to make sure the BIOS are secure.
Any advice would help tremendously, or am I just being uber paranoid? BIOS are definitely not my strength.
