OerHeks /j #mint-server20:39
daftykinsoh did you guys read about that person who, for fun ran "rm -rf /" on their machine before planning to do a clean install... only to find that due to a bug in their system's EFI, their EFI boot variables were set as read-write... so the whole system was bricked20:41
daftykinsit wouldn't even POST after that20:41
daftykinsseriously nasty :S20:41
OerHekshang the disk in an other machine, non-uefi, and zero it ?20:42
daftykinsnah the rm actually wiped EFI items under /proc - which meant the motherboard was useless after20:42
OerHeksoh, don't know about that20:43
daftykinshere we are20:43
OerHeksbut uefi is nasty indeed, i hesitate buying a fresh machine20:44
daftykinslots of buggy ones out there, indeedy20:44
daftykinsactually i updated the BIOS on a clients' Dell desktop the other day ahead of putting some new RAM in... afterwards i could no longer install Windows 7 in EFI mode, only legacy - ho-hum20:45
