Most any machine can be setup to shadow the ROM. On a different machine,
I wrote a few lines of code that would simply read and then write
ROM data. I set it up so that writes would go to RAM that on boot were
shadowed behind the ROM.
After the ROM had been copied, the code was still running from ROM.
I had a 7474 that would switch the enables on the ROM and RAM
when it saw the first I/O operation.
In your case, you'll either need to write separate I/O code for CP/M
or rige some way such that on each I/O action of the CP/M, you
switched the ROM back into memory. This should work so long as you don't
expect to buffer the I/O data where to ROM was. Both are relatively
simple to do.
