Java and BIOS
Can Java work in a low level environment like, booting a machine or data manipulation at the sector level?
I don't know for sure, but I doubt it. Even if you could, the high level nature of Java would likely make it the wrong tool for the job.

Get your arms coated in silicon and use assembly.
I agree with Rusty. Java is the wrong tool for this job. Partly because such low-level work varies so much between different hardware. Java is a high-level language that is meant to be platform-indepenedent. Even if you could find a way to make Java work at such a low-level, it would lose that. Instead, you should use Assembly or C which are both much better tools for this type of work.
Thank you very much for the response. I had a feeling this was the case, but thought I would verify.
