    Hello...
    This is very interesting device sold in UK...
    It has pure EFI and no bios implementation...Then I tried to unpack it with phoenixtool it detects it to be EFI / Inside Bios and uses tiano module compression.
    My question is if to this EFI can be added bios emulation ... Or maybe can be used bios from other device and edited to be convenient to this one... This device uses GMA500 Video and Atom Z520 processor (EFI is 32bit).
    I need this to install Windows on this device now it can only run Linux...
    Link to Bios Dump: box.net/shared/0dpglvugjf
    Backup link : tempfiles.net/download/201103/150156/Joggler.html

    Thank you for your help.

    But when it is flashed with any other bios device is not powering on...

    This device has 32bit EFI ... Windows doesn't supprot 32bit EFI so I can't install Windows on this device, what's why I want to Mod his EFI (or to flash BIOS from other device ).
    This device has 1.3 Atom processor, 512 ram,Intel GMA500 Video...

    No bios
    I suggest that you: write your own for yourself
    No bios - no mod

    If compressed then Tiano or LZMA compression. Andy's tool can decopress them, also you can view the structure of a particular bios by pressing the verify button. You can modify any module and the tool rebuilds the bios.

    I didn't that before what you've mentioned, though.
