Feature request: Backup Bios

In the following I will use firmware, Bios, EFI interchangably meaning the firmware on the mainboard.

For future Framework 16 mainboard iterations I request following feature:
Provide a second EFI slot or some backup mechanism to reflush the EFI to a working state without needing a working EFI.


  • Avoid bricking your mainboard on failed Bios Updates
  • Allow tinkering with firmware without risk
  • Facilitate porting of open source firmware like Coreboot. For my understanding some volunteers failed to due bricking their mainboards when coding a port
