I have a Gigabyte 880GM-USB3 motherboard, purchased around 2015. In all these years there has been no BIOS update. I don't remember switching on any setting that would perform an auto-update of the BIOS either. Few days back I used Ubuntu's updater to update the software in Ubuntu. Yesterday, when I started the computer, I saw this:
Since a computer-savvy cousin had been to my room sometime back, I took some caution considering the "evil maid attack", and didn't update the BIOS. Also because Q-Flash recommends not updating. However, I selected the option to save BIOS to Drive.
On doing this, it prompted me for a name to give the saved file, and I named it "biosSometh".
On restarting the computer, I searched the filesystem for this file, but couldn't find it. I don't have Windows installed. It's only Ubuntu.
May I know where such a file typically gets saved? I need to wipe the disk and re-install the OS, so it'd be nice to retain a copy of this saved BIOS file.
