Abstract

Disclosed is a method for capturing and displaying system sensor data during BIOS boot routines. Traditionally, boot-up BIOS displays are provided at POST (power-on self-test), and include only basic information about the status of hardware functionality. POST displays include information about BIOS, CPU type, memory test status, and whether disk drives, keyboards, and other devices have been detected. Traditionally, boot-up routines do not capture or display information about activities that are monitored or managed by microcontrollers
