I was instructed to send mail to you by Carebear from #coreboot.
I have some issues to report based on the "Golden Image" I received from 
him, which was created for the ASRock E350M1.

The first is with hard drive detection - there is a reliability problem 
here - only once out of every 5 to 12 times the machine posts will it 
detect the hard drive successfully.
The hard drive is a Corsair F120 SSD. I do have another, smaller 16GB 
Kingston SSD I can test with.

The second problem is that on booting, GRUB (I do not have the version 
on hand -- whatever gentoo is shipping as stable at this point) behaves 
very, very strangely with my USB keyboard.
I should point out that it does not work 100% correctly on another 
machine under Fedora's grub, so this may bear further testing with 
another keyboard.

The following video demonstrates the issue - this is very reproduceable 
(I gave exactly this input on the keyboard: "<down>, e, hello there, 
test, one, two, three", and only once. You can hear the clicking of my 

I will be traveling until May 31st, and so unable to reply to mail until 
then, but I do look forward to working with you all on this.

Thank you!
