Is it Richland or Trinity? Seems it is Richland. I haven't tried with Richland yet.

It would be helpful if you could include log from serial console. Maybe you hit 
some other problem.

You can also try to put memory only to blue slots.

Mine board is also 1.02 version. I think something wrong is with memory setup or 
cpu setup. Does original BIOS use 1.65V for DDR2 memory? You should select that 
in configuration too.

You can come to IRC #coreboot on freenode.net

I'm here until midnight GMT+2
