    Not that surprised.  A few years ago Intel decided that it was not, in fact, a motherboard company after all and it would rather forget that it was once the major player. No MoBo so no BIOS support required, right ?

    Reading recent data sheets from Intel I am beginning to suspect that they no longer know HOW to write a modern BIOS for their latest CPU’s and chipsets. They seem to have abdicated 😂

    Above is all the help Intel will provide to BIOS writers these days, there is no reference BIOS anymore.
