You wouldn't be able to get any comments back. If you wanted to look at an executable binary in assembler, you'd want to use a disassembler or a debugger.

Might work with the bios bin, if it is just the straight binary of instructions. The disassembler/debugger might need to understand that, I'm not sure. If its encoded in any way, you'd have to unencode it.

At any rate, you could use a hex editor and the intel instruction set manual.
