Project Summary

x86test - Bootable x86 CPU Identification and Reporting
x86test is a utility to display information about the CPU in an x86/PC system. It is bootable -- it doesn't run on any operating system -- and is currently entirely written in assembler (AT&T / GNU as syntax).
There are several reaons for x86test being bootable:complete OS independance.Some tests are impossible (insane?) from a modern OS e.g. resetting the CPU!Complete control of interrupts allows very accurate timing of clock frequencies etc.it can safely be run when you are unsure of system stability.x86test is simple to load either using a simple floppy disk bootloader, 'fatload', directly from an El Torito CDROM or using a linux loader such as LILO or GRUB. I would also like to make x86test Multiboot compatible.
In the future x86test might be developed to detect other hardware, although I don't have any specific plans.
As yet I haven't uploaded anything to savannah, but there is a working version here.
