I am a complete newbie in BIOS Area, I am starting this just now. So I guess the freebios is the best option to my embedded projects. Few day ago, I saw some posts about a Award bios source, this source should be very usefully for who is starting, there are this source available? Where can I find this? There are others bios sources available? I will starting in freebios studying all possible sources and posting all of my observations, please help me in this startup.
Award BIOS Source code was illegally published quite a long while ago, but it is not advisable to use this for any purpose, since it is Award/Phoenix's intellectual property.
Since most closed source software is never reviewed by a huge amount of community people, I am deeply convinced that you can learn a lot more about techniques, concepts and implementation from the free firmware variants that are out there, namely LinuxBIOS, OpenBIOS, uboot, gbios, Proll, Tiara.
