  1. I know that this can be done, I have seen screenshots of the CMOS settings in books and on the web.

    How can I get a screenshot of my CMOS settings?

    The only way I've ever been able to take a screenshot of that area is to either use a digital camera or KVM over IP. KVM over IP means I am remotely using the machine from another machine - and it requires some special hardware to do so. We use Avocent for our KVM over IP needs - but if this is a personal setup I doubt this will be a viable solution for you. Another method you could try is some sort of VM - but then all the info in your CMOS would be fabricated within the VM container so that wouldn't be useful for you either.

    If you have a proper printer (NOT a Windows-printer), attached to the parallel-port, that can also run without drivers, you can use Ctrl-P (control and P together) to print your BIOS-settings.

    No software can be loaded before BIOS setup unless you are willing to make a PCI card with some boot ROM on it..
