firmware or any of it's packages. The worst that can happen is that
you will need to repartition and reformat disks, or reflash the
firmware. We have never seen a case of hardware damage due to
firmware or package usage.

responsibility for your actions. This community is a meritocracy that
takes personal responsibility as a basic fact of life, not something
that lawyers argue about.
