    VERY bad experience after update to BIOS 35


      Issue #1 - I kicked off the BIOS install from within Windows.  It rebooted into the BIOS setup (what I'd call a DOS environment).  I saw a message that said something like "flash complete".  System rebooted, but never got to POST.  I let it sit in that state for a few minutes, but it never made any progress.  I know it didn't boot into the OS because there was no disk activity, LED's on USB kbd weren't on.


      I power cycled the device.  Still wouldn't boot.  Tried removing the DisplayPort cable.  Still didn't boot.  Reconnected DP, removed HDMI.  NOW it booted.


      Issue #2 - I get a garbled GFX image when I try to enter the firmware setup page.  This is right after pressing F2, or when trying to access it via Settings -> Update and Recovery -> Recovery -> Advanced Startup -> Restart Now (and then pick the UEFI firmware settings option).


      I'd like to get some guidance from Intel before trying to either re-flash the same rev, or try going back to an earlier rev.
