How does the BIOS do what it does? Is there any documentation on it? Intel docs seem to only cover topics needed by OS dev'ers.

What is the real initial state of the processor?

Yeah, I should have read more than the first three chapters before assuming initialization isn't mentioned.

I'd be glad if the whole thread would just disappear... *cough cough* WinkSmile
