I am not quite sure of the pertinence of testing generic PC hardware
knowledge in the first place. I know BIOS are an issue with the boot
process, and that some parameters might affect the way Linux handle it.
But I would tend to see it as outside the scope of LPI.
I would rather have LPI concentrate on topics that are specific to
Linux. As I said in other discussion, there is only so many objectives
you can cram into the exam, and there is plenty of stuff to test. Some
compromise have to be made. I would leave generic PC hardware knowledge
