    Nothing new really, few years back running certain Mac OS X on Dell machines also was resetting BIOS to defaults on each boot

    While it should not happen in ideal world, software is full of bugs and the number of possible combinations of versions with models available is probably more than lottery numbers, so it simply is not possible not have all permutations tested before release.
