Coreboot - BIOS Alternative

  •        1051

coreboot is aimed at replacing the proprietary BIOS (firmware) found in most computers. coreboot performs a little bit of hardware initialization and then executes additional boot logic, called a payload. coreboot can scale from specialized applications that run directly from firmware, run operating systems in flash, load custom bootloaders, or implement firmware standards, like PC BIOS services or UEFI.

C-BIOS


C-BIOS is an open source BIOS for MSX computers. C-BIOS can be shipped with MSX emulators so they are usable out-of-the-box. This project aims to improve C-BIOS by fixing incompatibilities with the MSX BIOS and the development of a Disk ROM.

BIOS Writer


BIOS Writer copies the settings of your PC's BIOS to a small image file. You can then restore that image file (and therefore it's settings) at a later date. With proper scripting (not included), it can be used to change BIOS settings across a cluster.

dmidecode


Dmidecode reports information about your system's hardware as described in your system BIOS according to the SMBIOS/DMI standard. This information typically includes system manufacturer, model name, serial number, BIOS version, asset tag as well as a lot of other details of varying level of interest and reliability depending on the manufacturer. This will often include usage status for the CPU sockets, expansion slots (e.g. AGP, PCI, ISA) and memory module slots, and the list of I/O ports (e.g.
