BIOS is the first place x86 jumps to after reset (long before floppy 
access since BIOS sets up the hardware in able to make a floppy access). 
You can only test a BIOS by having it in Flash waiting to be accessed 
when the x86 starts or by emulation. Emulating your exact hardware in 
software like bochs is going to be more work than playing the shell game 
with BIOS images in Flash.
