Default Intel announces a BIOS Implementation Test Suite (BITS)

Intel is pleased to announce the BIOS Implementation Test Suite (BITS),
a bootable pre-OS environment for testing BIOSes and in particular their
initialization of Intel processors, hardware, and technologies. BITS can
verify your BIOS against many Intel recommendations. In addition, BITS
includes Intel's official reference code as provided to BIOS, which you
can use to override your BIOS's hardware initialization with a
known-good configuration, and then boot an OS.
