ELAM looks to fill the gap between the point of installation and the point of getting anti-malware software. If you're a sane, educated person you have a usb stick for drivers/software for offline installation after doing a fresh reinstall.
Sounds allright. I may be reading this wrong but does this prevent rootkits from loading registry edits and software additions during boot, or will it force a system unbootable as altered firmware is rejected rather than booting with the rootkit?
UEFI needs to have a capability as a Read Only Mode so windows cant make changes to it
