    Not to continue a discussion on harmful things /dev/files can do to the
    machine but ... writing garbage into /dev/bios don't simply muck up the
    bios settings. It destroy your BIOS burning into it the garbage. Machine
    completely unusable ... BIOS destroyed ... return to the shop.

    So read the documentation, it save your ass :)
