I'll make a real effort Matt! I do have a real life also, but I'll see what can be done.
Come on Ian, hurry up with the rest of the Docs
This makes for fun Lunch Time reading!
All code here will work on any x86_64 chip, Intel or AMD. I originally started this work using an Athlon 64, but now use both Intel and AMD dual core chips.
Also note that SimNow, despite what the documentation implies, works perfectly well on Intel chips also. You really need it if developing low-level x86_64 code!
Is it AMD only ??
Not Intel core2duo ??
Thanks for posting this code and even putting some explanation of the code.
I really enjoyed taking a look at this, as I played with a lot of very raw 32 bit protected mode code back in the 90s, so it's pleasing to be able to update some of that knowledge to include the AMD64 architecture by looking through your work.
Thanks for sharing - nice code!
Please feel free to use any of the code here in any way that you wish. (I think that's the BSD licence?)
If any of it is useful just use it! If not - no guarantees given.
I've been for a long time searching for something like this for AMD64. There are tons for IA32, but none for AMD64. Nice work. Nice work with it. BTW: what's the license? BSD? Public Domain?
Nice work! Nice to see someone has taken the time to layout the boot process in such detail. It would be even more interestng to see a few more applications added.
Welcome to my guestbook! Any comments are welcomed.
