Hi all,
Now I can install&boot OpenSuse with "coreboot(intel fsp)+seabios".
For win7 & win8 ,I think that tianocore as payload is a better way. Intel Fsp provide HOB pointer,we maybe need to hand off this to DXE pharse and then do mainboard init .....

Hi Zoran,
What do you think of this idea?

>Second, David, my answers are down below regarding Win7 and Win8. Today I have started testing more than kernel 3.0.13 (which I have adopted to Bare Metal OS, since I am embedded guy). I found that very few kernels so far are booting. But 3.0.13 without flaw, constantly coming up!

Win8 seamlessly boots with IVB CRB with EFI BIOS. Knowing that Win7 requires EFI or UEFI BIOS (mandatory using EFI/UEFI BIOS drivers), I did not expect Win7 to boot. The pleasant surprise was that Win7 bootloader tried to boot Win7, concluded that Win7 is broken/damaged (NO EFI drivers), and safely redirected me back to Win7 bootloader VGA screen asking me for the options:

I assumed (exchanging some thoughts internally with some designers) that Win8 is "dual", so it'll go to discover EFI/UEFI, but if it fails, it has different mechanisms to boot without EFI/UEFI. I tried to boot 3 times. All three times the blue Win8 flag/logo appeared with the message: Preparing Automatic Repair. And froze.
