i called out the pistachio based urara back in january.  based on what i saw, i wouldn't call it a chromebook... perhaps for digital signage or a new chromecast.

Since posts about Intel Boot Guard are all the rage now, here's mine (also syndicated on https://blogs.coreboot.org/)
So some innocent post on the coreboot mailing list managed to make some waves. The problem Intel tries to solve… Intel Boot Guard is the latest effort in a long series by Intel and others to allow computers to provide...

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Intel-Boot-Guard-Kills-Coreboot While Coreboot has been ported to a number of older ThinkPads and other outdated Intel motherboards and laptops, you don't see many modern Intel systems supporting Coreboot. The reason for the lack of Coreboot support is due to a "feature" introduced with Haswell.

Purism certainly was backtracking on the firmware side.
; Purism Librem is an interesting project which promises to produce a completely libre laptop, designed to respect the user's privacy and the user's rights. The indivduals behind the project seem so confident as to "promise that a Purism system and all its components will be free according to

At least in our community, it was pretty clear they had no idea what they were up against, or how many of us have been down that road before (starting with me and Dell and Compaq and IBM in 2000 ...). It's a shame they didn't see fit to talk to a community that had a clue. I guess it's easier to show pretty pictures and write pretty web pages and make grandiose claims than to do the hard work of achieving the goal.

There was a write-up on hacker news about how x86 boots, using coreboot as an example. I asked if I may copy it to the coreboot wiki, got permission and here it is. Thank you, Chris!
(based on https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8781082 with permission by the original author, Chris Douglass). Taking Intel Haswell processors as an example (because I know this code path) we can sketch the general process. Start at 0xfffffff0, the boot vector for x86, executing in 16-bit "I ...

coreboot + Tianocore-as-payload (of the corebootPkg variety) installing and booting Windows 8.1 on QEmu.

That really took me long enough.

Nothing special to do: build tianocore as payload, then coreboot with that payload. Use that in QEmu. (oh, special trick: -vga std since native graphics for qemu doesn't seem to work with the cirrus emulation and large resolutions)

The interesting step is building tianocore, which is explained on https://github.com/pgeorgi/edk2/. If there are ways to make it clearer, I appreciate patches/pull requests.

There are still many things to do, and at some point I should try to get it onto real hardware. And secure boot, non-volatile variable storage, etc...
