Show us the line of code where you are including bios.h

Do you understand the difference between
#include <theFile.h>
and
#include "theFile.h"

bios.h is an ancient fossil from 16-bit real-mode DOS days.

Your compiler can only generate 32-bit protected mode win32 programs.

Why do you want to pull your nice new Ferrari around as if it were a horse drawn cart?

In other words, tell us what you're trying to do (serial port say) and then we can tell you the nice modern win32 way to do it.

Are you? How interesting.

What exact form does that confusion take?
