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.
The last person who advertised that they had Award BIOS source was in a legal mess not long after that. I don't know if that person is in jail at this point or merely bankrupt. I strongly advise all concerned to NEVER traffic in or accept this type of proprietary code.
