There are manuals ?

El Torito just specifies how to direct the BIOS to the
boot image, and what the boot image can learn from the
BIOS about its origin.
Possibly this silently builds on MBR specs. But about
those i can only find wikipedia rumors:
"the CPU is in real mode and the general-purpose and
 segment registers are undefined"

Last time i did machine code was with the 6502 of my
VIC-20, because Microsoft BASIC was so darn slow.

Have a nice day :)
