Hello Mark,

I am not sure why you are booting from BIOS (and what kind of BIOS you are using?), but I do not see any necessity to boot from BIOS to Coreboot. You should boot from BIOS to GRUB, most probable.

It seems that your BIOS is working and booting, but not handing thread of execution to Coreboot. I would suggest to you to very carefully review your Coreboot settings (make menuconfig, what kind of CPU family you use there).

You can also post to us attached Coreboot .config for review. And yes, please, which BIOS (make, version)?

Most of The Time you should be "intel inside" to be capable to think "out of the box".

Hi, I was hoping someone could help me out or point me in the right direction with a tyan s2912-e board not booting with coreboot,
2x 2419 opterons
Onbard SAS LSI 1064e
AMD Radeon 7850 2GB

the codes on the onboard POST display (from port 80) are changing so fast that I cannot make them out however it is seems by the pattern of codes outputted that it is in a loop, are there any particular settings in the menuconfig that are required? Or have I missed something obvious?
The system flashes with flashrom no problem
I have tried booting with 1 CPU and just 1 stick of RAM, removed the PCIe GFX card. I have also built coreboot with and without the onboard VGA bios but none of this makes any difference, any help would be greatly appreciated.
