Macs don't have a Bios. What are you trying to accomplish?

Well I was trying to see if I can change how much of my video memory is shared with the system, and I wanted to know if there is any difference between pc bios and mac.

Yes there is a difference...as mentioned...Mac's don't have BIOS. Mac's do have "firmware"...but it's not accessible/adjustable/changeable like BIOS is in Windows computers. Instead...Mac's have "EFI":
