Yeah porting the main payloads to RISC-V (also consider OpenPOWER) is a
GRUB2 and SeaBIOS are the main ones - SeaBIOS is the default and most
people use that as it "just works" as a traditional "BIOS" firmware
loader where the user is presented with a screen and can pick various
such as booting from hdds, dvd drives, Option ROM etc.
This is pretty ill informed advice. SeaBIOS implements a legacy, x86
specific interface. This is not something you'd ever want to implement
on non-x86 hardware.
I personally suggest that while you are skilled before
you dive in neck
deep and start porting you should purchase an affordable coreboot device
and install it such as the KCMA-D8 which is a great owner controlled
open source firmware example of coreboot.
People can contribute to coreboot without even owning a physical device
on which coreboot runs, let alone *your* favorite board. The board you
suggest is not a good example at all. The code supporting that board has
some serious quality issues.
