The Coreboot open-source BIOS/UEFI replacement now has initial support for the Lenovo ThinkPad T530 notebook.

The ThinkPad T530 laptop features support for a third-generation Intel Core processor, QM77 chipset, and Intel HD Graphics and NVIDIA Quadro NVS 5400M Graphics with Optimus Technology. The ThinkPad T530 support for Coreboot is based in large part on the Coreboot support for the ThinkPad X230 ultrabook that was added at the beginning of the year.

The T530 Coreboot support landed today with this Git commit.

Those curious about using Coreboot on other hardware can find the supported motherboards and supported chipsets/devices via their project Wiki.
