However, I've tried to press F12, on the UART client as well as on
the PS2 keyboard, I cannot reach seabios menu.
Okay, that is different - it leads me to believe that coreboot isn't
turning on your ps2 port.
SeaBIOS does not read keys from the serial port. If you wish to do
that then add the sgabios optionrom to the flash - see the directions
Something is indeed very wrong as using coreboot as
BIOS does not
initialize the keyboard in fact. Pressing "num lock" on the
keyboard does not change the LED status. With the legacy BIOS it
does of course.
It's SeaBIOS that implements the numlock led - since SeaBIOS can't
access the ps2 port it wont work.
I am sending you what you have asked anyway. So I
guess as for the
VGA we are back to coreboot code base?
I think we need to get input from the coreboot experts.
