Galileo BIOS Support

I am interested in finding out just what type of BIOS is available in the Galileo board in support of features of the Quark processor.

Is the BIOS just a boot loader for the Linux distribution?

Or is there a full BIOS similar to what one would have expected in days gone by on a i483 or Pentium type PC motherboard?

i have forwarded this to the Quark bios team Michael, as far as i know its a recent EDK2 bios but those guys can provide much more info but I do know that the full software stack, edk2, grub, linux and arduino sketch all compiles with gcc.

cheers

Hi,

Ado is correct, it's a standard UEFI BIOS based on UDK2010.SR1. Along with the code and documents in the board support package and on maker.intel.com you can find further details about UDK2010 at tianocore.org.

Thanks,

Stuart
