PBIOS (PQURE BIOS) is backward compatible with legacy BIOS and can be used with any operating system.
PBIOS is designed to achieve the shortest boot time possible whilst complying with relevant BIOS standards.
When starting up, PBIOS performs the standard POST (Power On Self Test) process and optimized hardware initializations in less than a second. Only a subset of POST processing is executed during a soft reset.
The BIOS disk API supports reliable transfers of up to 255 sectors on any media, reducing the number of calls required to load an image.
PBIOS complies with the ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) 2.0 standard.
SMBIOS and VBIOS
PBIOS supports SMBIOS (System Management BIOS) and VBIOS (VGA BIOS) specifications.
PBIOS support of power state C0-C6, makes it capable of optimizing power and performance according to the demands of the system.
PBIOS supports UHCI, OHCI, EHCI and XHCI host controller standards.
PBIOS is very compact, leaving most of the flash memory space available for a file system. The file system is copied to ram and used as an emulated drive if no other bootable device is present.
We use the drive emulation to integrate our PDOS OS for BIOS management purposes.
You'll be able to use it for any purpose. You can add custom PDOS applications to our file system, use another OS on our file system or another file system. It's all up to you.
A simple reboot will remove any malware infection as the original file system is fixed in read only memory.
PBIOS setup and core functionality are customized for the platform. Most BIOS options are not part of the setup as these are normally automatically configured by PBIOS at run time.
Core BIOS customization for your product is available on request. You'll also be able to customize by your self as described below.
PBIOS flash image consist of the following distinct parts.
On request you'll be able to split the BIOS image into its parts and recombine them again after modification.
The OEM hooks is an externally binary module that is enabled by us on request. PBIOS will call your selected hooks during POST.
The core BIOS can be used with different products using the same chipset, where the differences are handled by OEM hook code.
With OEM hooks enabled, any problem is within your code and you will be able to fix it without modifying your trusted core BIOS.
The bootable file system image can be mounted as a drive in most operating systems. You can add your custom PDOS drivers and applications.
One option is to replace the file system image part with another OS and/or file system. PBIOS will not mind.
