I tested ADLO on EPIA but it failed on the first try. 

I grapped vgabios using your Makefile target and  modified loader.s to
shadow ram control registers of EPIA. 
However,  it hang around post code 0x96 and nothing is shown on the CRT. 

Do you have any idea what 0x96 post code means. 
Is it a bochs post code or vgabios postcode?
