I was instructed to send mail to you by Carebear from #coreboot.
I have some issues to report based on the "Golden Image" I received
from him, which was created for the ASRock E350M1.
The first is with hard drive detection - there is a reliability
problem here - only once out of every 5 to 12 times the machine
posts will it detect the hard drive successfully.
The hard drive is a Corsair F120 SSD. I do have another, smaller
16GB Kingston SSD I can test with.
Thanks for the report. Can you send the seabios log - see the
A log of a successful case and a failure case would be helpful.
The second problem is that on booting, GRUB (I do not
version on hand -- whatever gentoo is shipping as stable at this
point) behaves very, very strangely with my USB keyboard.
I should point out that it does not work 100% correctly on another
machine under Fedora's grub, so this may bear further testing with
The following video demonstrates the issue - this is very
reproduceable (I gave exactly this input on the keyboard: "<down>,
e, hello there, test, one, two, three", and only once. You can hear
the clicking of my keyboard.)
Okay - that's really odd. Can you change the dprintf in
usb-hid.c:handle_key() to use a value of 8 instead of 9 and send the
log as above? (If you need help with building SeaBIOS, let me know.)
Also, if you can use tools/readserial.py to capture the log (so that
we can see the relative timestamps), that would also help.
