I think that can be only done in assembler.

I previously answered a question like this.  See "computer's BIOS date" in the Delphi area.  You will have to adapt it to read what ever area you are interested in.

The easiest way to do that is by reading them strait from memory. Allmost all BIOS data is stored in a specific place in memory. It depends on what information you want which place it is. You could search the net to find the appropriate addresses.
