Embedded BIOS/Firmware Development

Anyone looking for a fast embedded BIOS/Firmware that runs the Linux Kernel from a 1MB BIOS, then please check out www.aexorsystems.com. I checked out their demo too, and its really cool. Instead of booting to a BIOS setup menu, you can boot into Linux and control everything from there.

The very first instruction at the CPUs reset vector is a jump instruction that points to some real code. My suspicion is that when you are modifying the original file that jump instruction is not lining up or not being placed at the reset vector. I can't remember for sure, but the opcode on x86 for ...

what is the info on your northbridge? What kind is it? Might be able to help you find the register.

That is correct. Look for that BIOS option. I know that Intel chipsets support this feature (since like 1999) and it is up to the BIOS vendor ro implement it. What is the chipset you are using? Motherboard?
