Well, take a look at http://www.codeproject.com/KB/system/driverdev.aspx ("Driver Development Part 1: Introduction to Drivers") - yet calling WMI from C++ is a piece of cake compared to that. Plus, any small error inside a driver will cause a BSOD.

In the case of Win7, you pretty much will have to go the WMI route (the only other alternative would be to write a driver) - see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa394077%28VS.85%29.aspx ("Win32_BIOS Class") and http://www.codeproject.com/KB/system/UsingWMI.aspx ("Making WMI Queries In C++")

As I wrote: If you want to write your own kernel-mode driver - yes. If not, you'll have to use WMI.
