Hello everyone,

yes I can confirm that the Kconfig build method work for me too. As
Rudolf said I had to disable VGA ROM as well otherwise it will came up
with a exception error. It's necessary to have "Serial port console
output" set to yes or it won't compile.

Now I will start the next Board a Supermicro H8QME-2+ :) see how this

bye and thank you all!!
