I'm trying to do something very trivial and it fails badly.

Clean checkout. Make menuconfig. Select emulation, and the q35 chipset. That's the only change I make. All else is default. I note that native vga is selected by various Kconfigs. 

Build crosstools.

Then build coreboot. The standard make brings in and builds seabios.

qemu-system-x86_64 --bios build/coreboot.rom -cdrom tinycore.iso -boot d

fails badly. If i set --nographic, I see it fails trying to load the ramstage. 

It continually restarts. 

Without the --bios switch it boots the standard qemu bios just fine.

So, the question: does this work for any of you?
