Hello,

    I had written a BIOS to initialize the hardware. My embedded device has linux OS. After the hardware initialization, I had to load my OS from hard disk into memory. Now my BIOS program should somehow call the bootloader(LILO). How shall I link my BIOS and Bootloader program?

is doing. It loads MBR from HD to memory and jumps to it.
