assuming you've built with CONFIG_COLLECT_TIMESTAMPS=y, you can build/run
the cbmem utility and see how long each stage/section of coreboot is taking
(up to the point of handing off control to the payload). 30s to boot
sounds like either you're not caching the RAM training data (MRC cache) and
therefore redoing RAM training each time, or outputting the boot console to
a non-existent serial port (which can slow everything down). Whatever it
is, looking at the timestamps will go a long way towards identifying the

We have developed a coreboot image for Apollo lake custom board. The time
taken for boot up is around 30 seconds.
We would like to reduce the boot time as much as possible.
Following codes are removed:
1. Non-intel Apollolake specific codes in below folders
1. Splash screen loading
2. SPI support – other than our custom board SPI.
Also we have disabled the COMPRESS_RAMSTAGE. Still we are not able to
reduce the boot time.
Please suggest the methods to reduce the boot time.
Thanks & Regards,
