Sanitizing A PC: Another Item For The Checklist

Just got another off-lease Dell, fired it up for the first time, and the BIOS presented this splash screen:

Optiplex 780 BIOS A06 Splash

Optiplex 780 BIOS A06 Splash

Updating the BIOS from A06 to A13 restored the default Dell logo, but I really miss having a Genuine Lockheed Martin PC.

The Windows 7 Professional installed on the disk started up in “first time” mode, so they did scrub the drive. It does have RAID enabled, though, which may confuse the Linux installation I have yet to do.

I wish I could put my logo on the BIOS splash screen…
