two years have passed since I developed the support for MS-6147.
Now I return to slowly activate myself again. In a first run
I would like to report the following:
1. Coreboot-v4.0, svn rev 5740, works well on MSI MS-6147.
2. In the overview of supported mainboards, there ought to
be an entry "Y" for MSI MS-6147, stipulating that the
DIL32-ROM is set in a socket.
3. SeaBIOS works on MS-6147, but I had to strip down most
functionality in order to fit the combined image into
the 64 kB available (120 byte to spare!) since the
standard fallback duplication was left intact. No VGA
BIOS was included.
4. From this minimal SeaBIOS payload, I did successfully
boot into a fully functional OpenBSD 4.4, which I as
always use with a serial console. The disk is a 1GB
Compact Flash card.
