    Hey everyone,

    Is there a way of viewing a BIOS bin/rom file to explore the menu structure and options?

    Would QEMU be able to load a bin file extracted from a hardware BIOS chip?

    1. Using QEMU or similar virtualization solutions, you can't do it.
    2. Phoenix BIOS Editor can preview vanilla Phoenix roms, but its old, not generic & error-prone.
    3. If the rom is UEFI compliant, then it can be possible to extract the setup utility module & get the idea of the available menus/submenus.
