Your reply is very helpfull to me (especailly the part about using v2 - I was unsure which
of v2 or v3 was appropriate) and very clear. I will follow the "destructions"
(probably not till August becasue busy in June and holiday most of July) and once I have
blown up the board will post the results to this list.

I realise your list is very technical and this is probably
a daft set of question so please forgive me if it is
cluttering up your list but I couldn't find a more
appropriate place to ask,..
... so here goes.
My questions are about running coreboot on an ASUS KFN4-D16
with an NVIDIA CK804 chipset and a SST SST49LF080A (BIOS?)
chip 33-4C-NHE 0631138-B
I have 2 cpus one is a 65nm dual core opteron 2210, the
second CPU is a quad core 45nm "Shanghai" opteron
2376 - this CPU isn't supported by the ASUS BIOS.
My aim is to get the board to boot with the quad core CPU,
I would be happy if it boots with support for all the RAM
and at least one of the ethernet ports, I can live without
PCI, SATA, USB etc.They should all work.
My plan is to use a BIOS saviour and buy a second
SST49LF080A chip and then
1. flash coreboot for K8 (?) with flashrom to verify that
coreboot works on this board
2. flash coreboot for fam10 (?) with flashrom
does this sound like a good plan?Yes.
I have a couple of other questions
E. what sort of BIOS chip / bios saviour kit should I use
with this board?RD1
output from flashrom, superiotool and lspci appended
many thanks for any help and good luck with your project,
No coreboot table found.
Found chipset "NVIDIA CK804", enabling flash
Calibrating delay loop... OK.
Found chip "SST SST49LF080A" (1024 KB) at
physical address 0xfff00000.Hopefully this
chip is socketed.
Found Winbond W83627THF/THG (id=0x82, rev=0x84) at
0x2eThis SuperIO is supported.

This board is very similar to the
If I were you, my first step would be to get the BIOS
savior (or just use the pushpin method)
Once you can recover from a bad flash,
check out the latest coreboot-v2
svn cp src/mainboard/tyan/s2892/*
svn cp targets/tyan/s2892/Config.lb targets/asus/kfn4-d16/
Enable devices that are in your lspci, disable any that
don't show up. Don't worry about cards that you
plug in, they'll be found automatically.
Change the SuperIO from chip superio/winbond/w83627hf to
superio/winbond/w83627thf and change any settings there that
you need to.
Change socket_940 to socket_F
(When you're ready to switch to fam10)
Change amdk8 to amdfam10 everywhere (may need some other
Change s2892 to kfn4-d16
make sure ROM_SIZE matches the chip you're using.
make a payload (Maybe seabios)
cp your_payload targets/asus/kfn4-d16/kfn4-d16/payload.elf
make -C asus/kfn4-d16/kfn4-d16
