MS Visual Studio 2008 with WiDDK in Windows 7 x64 Pro and,
GCC-multilib 4.5.2 in Archlinux x64 (using build64.sh)       -> I
tried this one, easier for me

I have a FAT32 partition from which I load the FullShell so no problem

I wanted to know if it is possible to make DUET aware of HDD if AHCI
mode is enabled in BIOS (Phoenix SecureCore). VirtualBox 4 seems so
have added such support (in OVMF). How about removing the logo from
the FDF file?
