Of course, VMWare will only allow you to capture the VMWare BIOS, which I think is based on the Phoenix BIOS.

If you need an exact representation of the BIOS on your machine, VMWare won't give it to you. Instead, I think you will have to manually recreate it somehow. Taking pictures with a digital camera and running it through OCR might save a bit of time, but you will still have to do a lot by hand.

VMWare...will allow you to do EVERYTHING you need to do related to
documenting the install of OS. Another nice thing is the ability to
create a snapshot of the session and repeatedly return back to that
point, which would allow you to run the same part of the procedure
over and over until you've documented it "just right".
