Hard drive firmware by all these manufacturers compromised: Western Digital Corp, Seagate Technology Plc, Toshiba Corp, IBM, Micron Technology Inc and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd. Curious, do we load this firmware from the OS?

That'll bring us to Coreboot (or similar). It starts in flash and l leaves the HDD untouched until it wants to boot from it.
