I have successfully installed and booted win-xp with coreboot-v2 and
legacybios under qemu. Unfortunately, when I try to install or boot
win-xp with coreboot-v2 and legacybios on my via epia-m the system
At this point, I don't know if the problem is related to coreboot and
its epia-m support, or if it is related to legacybios. I've confirmed
that the hang does not occur inside the bios. The last thing the
install reports before hanging is "Setup is starting Windows".
It would be helpful if others could try installing / booting win-xp
on real hardware. If you can do this, please follow the directions
The actual patch is
but that's huge and totally unreadable so I recommend reviewing
That's the only change to the buildrom code itself, the rest is just
replacing the whole scripts/kconfig/ dir with the new kconfig.
I used the coreinfo kconfig/ with only a handful of string replacements
a la s/coreinfo/buildrom/ so the diff to coreinfo's kconfig is tiny.
I did some ad-hoc testing with this, tried various kconfig targets
(menuconfig, xconfig, gconfig, ...) and various buildrom builds and
it seems to work fine so far, but some more testing by others is

This is the same patch I posted earlier which adds legacybios to
buildrom. It has some options hardcoded in hardcode.diff because it
seems like the easiest way to keep the configuration in one place.

I still waiting for linuxbios/coreboot to support at least these devices
(AMD761, VIA VT82C686B). I have 'Abit KG7-RAID' MotherBoard and there are
such devices. I'd like to run this MB with CoreBoot. I can provide a lot of
datasheets and specsheets for these devices (all family of AMD7xx (AMD751,
AMD756, AMD761, AMD762, AMD766, AMD768)).
As part of my GSoC project, I've started making a Linux-as-Bootloader
payload using buildrom, but I got stuck when compiling uclibc.
I get a compilation error saying that it cannot find limits.h. This is
the complete error message:
In file included from ./include/sys/param.h:22,
./include/limits.h:124:26: error: limits.h: No such file or directory
make: *** [libc/sysdeps/linux/common/chdir.os] Error 1
make: *** [lib/libc.so.0] Error 2
make: Leaving directory
[/home/cristi/soc/buildrom/buildrom-devel/work/uclibc/uClibc-0.9.29/lib/libc.a] Error 2
I searched google and it seems it's a toolchain error. Can someone with
more experience in hacking on buildrom give me a hint about what I'm
Maybe it is just me, but it seems like lately there have been a lot of
posts to the mailing list about, coreboot not supporting ANY Intel
chipsets/cpu's. Is there rumors spreading around the mill??? If so we need
to nip this in the bud, this is probably discouraging people that want to
get involved with coreboot.

OK with me. I assume you have tested the code.

Mine AMIC flash chip needs 4 bytes RDID. Following patch adds support for that.

Very nice work! AFAICS it will work with all problematic cases I know.
