Can anyone help me regarding the instructions to build coreboot 4.11 release for Harcuvar platform.
I am not able to see the microcode, FSP_T and other settings in make menuconfig (for the Harcuvar platform).
I am already using the settings suggested under the doc "denverton-ns-coreboot-pc-001-release-notes-v1-3 " to build the coreboot version number 4.9.
I am facing the given problem when I am trying to migrate to coreboot-4.11 release (while using the same steps).
Thanks in advance,
I currently cannot boot Linux (Fedora 31) using either TianoCore payload on
a skylake laptop. I've received the error message "NMI watchdog: watchdog
detected hard lockup on CPU #" once, but it's otherwise just been
I've tried enabling the legacy 8254 timer, but I don't think it helped.
This is for a port in progress that did previously boot properly.
Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong with it?
I have a complete Supermicro server system with a H8SCM-F motherboard inside that I'd like to install Coreboot on.
According to the old wiki, it appears to have been pretty well supported (https://www.coreboot.org/Board:supermicro/h8scm).
I looked through the mailing list and found a few threads regarding issues with the board, but those were mostly older or related to the BMC (IPMI) on this reversion, which I do not intend to use at all.
However, while building the payload, I noticed that I couldn't select this model, since there are only Supermicro Intel boards available.
How would I go about flashing my board with the latest Coreboot (if that makes sense)?
Thank you in advance for any hints!
Mr Chromebox uses a script to install Core Boot onto Chrome Book without
opening the laptop, or attaching a PROM; (CH341a, Ponoma 5250 Test Clip,
F to F Breadboard Jumper Cables.)
Is using a Script without using hardware PROM, and so on, like Mr.
Chromebox does with a Chrome Book?
Thanks for what you are doing. and for your replies.
I'm looking for information about BBS (Bios Boot Specification) table.
How CSM module (legacy bios) of bios fetches BBS table?
Is BBS table located at specific location?? and CSM module just reads the
memory chunk and interpret data and display bootable device.
I would like to ask if anybody have ever met the same error. I am using an older version of Intel FSP to build coreboot
for an Atom 3845 processor.
On the ramstage compilation, i am getting this error:
...../src/mainboard/intel/minnowmax/acpi_tables.c:135: undefined reference to `AmlCode'
As i can see AmlCode seems to be an external array in that file. But it doesn't exist anywhere in the whole version of coreboot
that i am having.
Anyone knows how this error could be possibly treated?
I'm trying to install coreboot on an ageing Lenovo X220 (4287-CTO) to
help advance the fwupd plugin support. I'm the fwupd and LVFS
maintainer so having an actual coreboot machine running Fedora would
be a very useful thing indeed.
I've tried many different .configs, and most of the data in the wiki
and various blog posts is very old (multiple years) and as yet I
haven't manage to build anything that boots, or even turns on the
display for that matter. Using spkmodem I am able to get some
debugging output. Using CONFIG_USE_NATIVE_RAMINIT I get (ending in):
SPD probe channel1, slot0
Not a DDR3 SPD!
No valid XMP profile found.
Not a DDR3 SPD!
SPD probe channel1, slot1JNot a DDR3 SPD!
No valid XMP profile found.
Not a DDR3 SPD!
No DIMMs were found
This is with 4+4GB of PC3 RAM, more details available on request.
Using CONFIG_USE_NATIVE_RAMINIT not set I get the slightly more
FMAP: area COREBOOT found @ 710200 (982528 bytes)
CBFS: Locating 'mrc.bin'
CBFS: Found @ offset 8fdc0 size 2fc94

...and then the system just hangs. If anyone has a working .config for
the X220 (although if it's using an old version of coreboot, the git
tag you used would be very useful). If anyone knows what those
messages mean, I'm also very grateful. Thanks!
Hi Coreboot Mailing list,
I am trying to install Openbsd via the install66.fs on a Thinkpad X220 [amd64] with coreboot.
I have the problem that it does not recognize any USB or SATA device may it be storage or peripherals like a keyboard, except for the boot USB.
I tried with external USB storage, multiple different internal SSD's, multiple USB keyboards, but sysctl does not show anything and dmesg does not give a message when plugged in or out.
I also tried with the grub and seabios payloads but it did not make a difference.
Coreboot and payloads are compiled at master and agenst the latest stable version but it did not make a difference.
coreboot Master version is 4.11-1189.
When I look at dmesg I see ahci failed, I know you guys will need to see my dmesg but since I can't save it to a drive [read problem above]
and the installation fs only has ftp to communicate to the web as far as I can see and I don't know how to set up a ftp server, I am at a loss of how to get it out.
Maybe I am missing something?
A part of dmesg I think may be helpful that I typed over:
em0 at pci0 dev 25 function 0 "Intel 82579LM" rev 0x05: msiem0: The EEPROM Checksum Is Not Valid
em0: Unable to initialize the hardware
ehci0 at pci0 dev 26 function 0 "Intel 6 Series USB" rev 0x05: apci 2 int 19
ehci0: reset timeout
ehci0 init failed, error=13
ehci1 at pci0 dev 29 function 0 "Intel 6 Series USB" rev 0x05: apci 2 int 18
ehci1: reset timeout
ehci1 init failed, error=13

"Intel 6 Series SMBus" rev 0x05 at pci0 dev 31 function 3 not configured
"Intel 6 Series Thermal" rev 0x05 at pci0 dev 31 function 6 not configured
I hope this is enough info and would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me out!
Hello, I am wondering what steps do I need to take to install Coreboot on a
laptop that has Libreboot already installed on it. Do I need to hardware
flash Coreboot or can I use flashrom since Libreboot is already installed.
Thank you for your time and help.
I made the jump into the ivybridge world, sort of head first, and now
I need help.
I put my result so far on gerrit:
I got nothing trying to boot it. No video. No serial. The closest
resemblance of "life" is a bootblock banner in the SPI console I
pulled off my flash chip, but its date is so wrong (Feb 3 vs. today,
Feb 18) I can't trust that, so I effectively have nothing, and I
essentially know nothing when it comes to dealing with an ME platform,
as you know my good old i440bx has none of these crap. I don't even
know where to start looking.
Here's what I did.
- Complete vendor firmware dumped off original SPI chip.
- Extracted descriptor and ME binary, VBT. I can get at the VGA BIOS if needed
- ME to remain intact until I get this to boot.
- flashrom layout saved
- Unlocked IFD with ifdtool
- Patched the chip id in #2 of 3 VSCCs in IFD to match my new flash
chip (W25Q64JVSSIM), was 0xef,0x40,0x17, now 0xef,0x70,0x17
- Run autoport while still on OEM firmware.
- Incorporated stuff from p8z77-m_pro which autoport didn't provide.
- Resized the CBFS to cover the entire IFD bios region
- Put dumped IFD and ME blob into config. Build. Flash. frser-duino on
Mega2560 R3 w/ Hoodloader2 is slow, but works.
Board has a serial port, and I have a serial cable that should work,
one that I tested after booting into systemrescuecd on a USB drive on
I'm attaching pretty much everything I have handy besides the actual
port itself, in the gerrit link above.
I am now a lost pig. Appreciate all help. Do tell me what else I need to put up.
