OK, I downloaded linuxbios but I dont have a supported
board/chipset (an older acer aspire with an ALI chipset).
And of course, acerlabs makes it a policy not to give away their specs.
But there still might be hope. Award bios's exist for other boards
with the same chipset (take a look at
for a cross reference).
I got one of those bios files and loaded it in awdbedit.
awdbedit lists the chipset registers, or so it seems
(click Recognized Items->System BIOS->"Chipset Registers" tab, as well
as the "Setup Menu" tab.)
Could that be enough info to get a board up and running?
The tables look kinda raw, ie no distinction between northbridge/southbdride
etc. The "Setup Menu" tab gives a little more detialed description
for some registers.
Are there any chipset experts out there who could comment on this?
