I have old Asus M3A78-EM [1] board inside my HTPC. I'm looking to
speed up the boot process of my HTPC. I have heard that coreboot can
boot directly into Linux or GRUB. I checked the supported list and
found out that my board is not on the list, but at the same time I see
that very similar board Asus M4A78-EM [2] is on and supported well. So
I am wondering how difficult and how much work wold be required to
port coreboot to my board.

Secondary question would be if I have to upgrade my HTPC witch board
would be better for using with coreboot: Intel i3-2100T based system
or AMD E-350 based?

Thank you,
