only thing i can think of, is by installing unverified firmware files
from a removable drive during installation, mainly because i'm not sure
how verifiable firmware blobs are...
every other package (including a DE) is always installed from
authenticated sources/mirrors (and mostly reproducible these days), so
it should be assumed malware-free.
