I would suggest that you use coreboot as firmware. If you require a
legacy BIOS environment then you can use coreboot together with
SeaBIOS. It works very well.

Reading and writing MSRs must be done with the instructions rdmsr and

Whenever you are accessing PCI config space registers, keep in mind
that each access is always two operations. First write the 32-bit PCI
config space register address to 0xcf8, then read or write 32-bit
data to 0xcfc.
Also note that if you are not using coreboot then you may not get a
lot of help here, since this mailing list is focused on coreboot. :)
