Question BIOS Bug at boot up

Hi,

I have just noticed the following error message when I first boot up.

"BIOS Bug: MCFG area at f0000000 is not E820 reserved".

My question is: Should I worry about it, and if so how do I fix it?

Any useful help will be appreciated.

Hello:
No, nothing much to worry about.
I understand that this is a kernel thing and will/should disappear in the next stable kernel release.
Sorry I cannot locate the official documentation, however, I am sure if you do a google you can read more about it.
