Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I've posted here, only just picked up my hobby OS again recently Cool

Right now I am developing the boot loader's hardware enumeration/initialisation stuff but I can't find any documents about booting multi core /processor platforms - I'd like to have the code to do all the combinations. I already have code that reads CPUID, SMP and APIC tables, just a case of using what I'm given...

So, does anyone know where I can find example code or docs that start other cores and processors?


Many thanks in advance!
