thanks for the feedback. What version of Coreboot did you use? Is the
stable 4.7 enough or should I use a snapshot from the git-repository?
Also the question how to include the VGA-bios for the NVidia-card. I did
a compilation with the VGA-bios for Intel and included the rom
afterwards with cbfstool. Is this the correct way to do as "optional rom"?
