Intel "Intel is pleased to announce the BIOS Implementation Test Suite, a bootable pre-OS environment for testing BIOSes and in particular their initialization of Intel processors, hardware, and technologies. BITS can verify your BIOS against many Intel recommendations. In addition, BITS includes Intel's official reference code as provided to BIOS, which you can use to override your BIOS's hardware initialization with a known-good configuration, and then boot an OS."

Wouldn't it be better to begin phasing out BIOS in favor of UEFI instead of creating yet more tools for BIOS?

The only thing worse than the BIOS is UEFI.
Yeah, I want big-content spyware (DRM et al) running _underneath_ my OS with full access to the network.
