    The output of superiotool is:
    Code:
    superiotool r6454
    Found ITE IT8718F (id=0x8718, rev=0x5) at 0x2e
    but i cant see the relevance with the VGA BIOS. Maybe you can enlighten me a bit on this issue.

    If you look at http://www.coreboot.org/VGA_support , for previous versions of coreboot there were several ways of getting the rom. But neither with bios_extract (Extracting from your vendor bios image) nor looking in /proc/iomem i can get/see the rom.

    related tools

    if you look at the main coreboot page you'll see a section on related tools, there they list flashrom and nvram, i think superio is the one you want.

    My Mobo is the Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H (Award BIOS), which is supported by coreboot. VGA is on-board HD4200.

    Documentation (http://www.coreboot.org/VGA_support) says i need to indicate path and filename for the VGA BIOS image and device_id and vendor_id. The last two i can find out with lspci -vnn, but i dont have the faintest idea of the name and the path of the VGA BIOS image. where can i find them???

    doing cat /proc/iomem i find no VGA ROM mapped.

    cheers.

    embeded dev boards (the target market of Sage) are not but the boards that support CoreBoot are clearly. This is a link right from the Coreboot page of working boards, its OK for v4. The press release from Sage was about these

    I was talking about the AMD development boards; I don't see any mention of Sage having their own boards. The AMD boards are obviously "available" on paper but I don't see anyone actually selling them.

    Can mere mortals buy those boards, or do you need to be a "partner" or something? They have a product brief and part numbers, but I haven't found a listing (not even a "no stock, call for lead time" one) at any distributor I've checked.

    with intel bits

    intel just released a Bios emulator BITS that may help with core boot's development
