Right, we still in progress (e.g. VBox 3.1 is failing to load FC12 with ACPI, and it can't load

I guess real EFI systems has proprietary  drivers + corresponding drivers, e.g. nvidia, 
and there're no serious reasons to use vga bios.

About rawhide, could you please give me some pointers on ISO images, 
instructions for kernel compilations (looks like it bit different from compilation of 
vanilla kernels)?
