Hi everyone,

At first, this project is great, thanks to everyone that contributed
to make it alive.

I build a new embedded system (Linux based) and seriously consider for
various reasons to replace the proprietary BIOS by coreboot.
Before promising heaven to business guys, I would like to see if
nothing will prevent me to realize it.

My system will probably have the following components:
* CPU: Core 2 Duo L7400
        - Overview: http://www.intel.com/design/intarch/core2duo/316663.pdf
        - Core 2 Duo datasheet:
* MB chipset: Intel 3100
        - Overview: http://www.intel.com/design/intarch/prodbref/315817.htm
        - Datasheet: http://www.intel.com/design/intarch/datashts/313458.htm
* The motherboard will probably be custom (at least adapted) and I
don't have enough information yet to provide.

Without wasting time from you, do you see anything that could prevent
me to port coreboot to this system (given your Intel NDA experience or

This port would surely contribute to the coreboot repository.

Kind regards,


PS: sorry if the information is available somewhere, I did not find it.
