If you try to install Linux without Windows on an encrypted disk will it lock you out of BIOS?
That's what happened to me on my LG gram, which was otherwise a nice laptop. To be clear, O am successfully running Linux on an encrypted disk, but I cannot access BIOS or update it. Of course, it's an integrated chip that cannot be removed. For whose security? BIOS controls me, I don't control BIOS. I believe the expression is "I just got owned". LG informed me I could get the code for about $500, but I don't even know whether that would would be each time I wanted to change BIOS, or not. Web search informs it's a familiar problem across many companies laptops, not just LG. Maybe next time I'll go patriotic with System 76.
