Well, the specific problem is that the BIOS appears to corrupt low
memory. It might corrupt other memory anywhere, but that would be
pretty pathologically evil. The assumption is that it gets away with it
Well, it wouldn't help in this case. It's not random hardware bit-flipping.

Or that its hitting stuff that doesn't kill the OS...
What has the vendor had to say and if they are not being helpful has
anyone considered delivered them a report of the corruption and trace info
by say registered post with a suggestion that they might now be knowingly
exposing customers to unneccessary risk through their inaction ...
