Thanks for your reply and preventing me to go any further in the wrong direction.
I've made it absolutely clear from the very start of the thread (see email subject lines) that I'd like to install coreboot with OpenBIOS.
Well, I hope you are sure that you need OpenBIOS. The way I read your initial message, I interpreted it as somebody has called their firmware an "open bios", and maybe didn't mean the OpenBIOS project specifically.
OpenBIOS is an implementation of a very specific firmware standard (I think it was called Open Firmware?). It didn't get any attention within the coreboot community in the last years, FWIW. If you are sure you need an IEEE 1275-1994 compliant firmware, you can try to build it manually (it's not hooked up to the coreboot build process). However, if that page is up-to-date it doesn't seem like you can easily get it to run outside an emulator. Which again makes me believe that it's not what you actually want.
With the link https://doc.coreboot.org/tutorial/part1.html I've obviously been led in the wrong direction.
No, it's still a very valuable lesson. If you want to build your own firmware based on coreboot, no matter the payload, you should start with such experiments.
