VMware and bochs provide the capabilities to simply change their system BIOS.
In VMware and Bochs you can set a filename for the BIOS that the Emulator/Virtual Machines shall use.

More about: "VMware/Bochs<-->BIOS development/Option ROM development" can be found here:


There are also two links inside the article which refer to the VMware forums.
You should visit the links too.
