coreboot® is running on a multitude of different computers, ranging from tiny embedded systems as small as the palm of your hand over desktop and server systems to super computers with thousands of nodes. And now this is the second i945 based notebook that can run coreboot. Thus, I am especially glad to announce that coresystems GmbH is releasing coreboot® for the Getac P470 notebook today. It's a semi-rugged notebook, protected against shock, featuring a fingerprint reader and a sunlight readable display: http://en.getac.com/products/P470/P470_overview.html
We have been testing various Linux distributions as well as Windows 7 booting on this nice notebook.
I want to sincerely thank those who made this project possible with their funding: - secunet Security Networks AG - Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnologie (Federal Office for Information Security, BSI)
A big thank you also goes to everyone who worked with coresystems on this project.
Best regards, Stefan Reinauer
