Me too, for a long time I have wanted a MB that I could run coreboot on,
so I might just as well enable this one to run coreboot. That way I can
also run it without an election heater ( > 8MiB GPU). Since it's being
used as a home server.

I have updated the patch to v2 trunk, and filled in the PCI bridge ids

CPU and chassis fans all stops shortly before loading the payload,
leading to the hardware watchdog restarting the system after af couple
of minutes.

I didn't got past LILO because I only had SATA drives in the machine and
  SATA didn't work.

What's the next step? How do I continue? How do I fix SATA?
