thank you for reporting this issue to the SeaBIOS mailing list.

I have a board here that uses an XGI Volari Z9s integrated graphics device. The board boots under coreboot and loads Linux, but if I add the appropriate VGA option ROM (extracted from the vendor BIOS) SeaBIOS hangs:

The Volari graphics initialise and work properly once Linux has booted and loaded the appropriate device drivers. For now I have been using SGABIOS for VGA emulation, however I would like to see the native VGA work on boot.
Is coreboot able to successfully run the Video BIOS? Just add it using the coreboot Kconfig menu.
