I was able to turn on the vga bios with some little changes:

I added the following lines to the files:
file: coreboot-v2/targets/hp/e_vectra_p2706t/Config.lb
    #vga bios
    pci_rom /tmp/vgabios.rom vendor_id=0x8086 device_id=0x7125
    #ethernet bios
    #pci_rom /tmp/ethbios.rom vendor_id=0x10b7 device_id=0x9200

file: coreboot-v2/src/mainboard/hp/e_vectra_p2706t/Options.lb
    default CONFIG_VGA_ROM_RUN = 1

sorry for this format but the patch not commited,
and it if difficult to me to create a diff.

the vga bios was generated with:
 $ amideco  In0203.rom -x
 $ cp amipci_00.20 /tmp/vgabios.rom

where: In0203.rom is a original BIOS file from hp sites

still, acpi is not working,
i try to find the reason tomorrow.
