Some of the boards implement ACPI. Those boards where we redid it from
scratch or used the code opened up by AMD.

None of the images includes a VGA BIOS image. Such image is only
required if you want to use the onboard graphics chips, and I am
currently in the progress of talking to onboard graphics chip vendors to
find a solution for that.
