Intel provides a Linux-ready Firmware Kit, available on a LiveCD (79
MB) ( http://linuxfirmwarekit.org/download/firmwarekit-r3.iso ). You
only have to launch it, wait 1 or 2 minutes, and there is a summary of
the results based on different topics (memory handling, PCI resources,
HPET, ACPI tables, and more). The results is a number of "Fail",
"Warn" and "Pass" flags. This Linux-ready Firmware Kit seems to not be
developed anymore, but I guess it can give us a idea of the quality of
the BIOS.
