    It will start alright, I am not worried about that. I have no problems with setting everything up, OS, drivers and such.
    My concern is that the BIOS is clean. Obviously, latest BIOS revision is not installed, but when I do so, does that mean that the old BIOS is overwritten in its entirety?
    Does simply the "Load BIOS Defaults" afterwards guarantee a clean start? What if there are any security-related settings - are those also restored to defaults?
    Is there something hidden/not obvious that I could also check?

    For example, I remember from previous case that a custom boot logo isn't removed when the BIOS is updated (because the image file is stored in a hidden partition). You need a seperate process for that.
    Is there anything else I should be looking up?
