I would be grateful if Anand or a mod would be kind enough to comment on this dilemma, comments from Intel employees who frequent this board would be welcomed too.
OROM/Bios motherboard modifications is not illegal. You can add/remove/modify anything you want to oroms/bioses, as millions have done before you. You do not buy a bios or a licence to one, nor agree to an EULA etc., and even if it did you can still modify the life out of it... Even apple can not deny users of ipone/ipad to modify their software/bioses, only that warranty may be invalidated if you brick your stuff.. The only legal issue with modding is when you try to make money of it, and thats not the issue here..
Post what you changed, so others can do it, if you still cannot kick the fear...
