Another AMD motherboard has been ported to work under Coreboot.

Sage Electronic Engineering, a company that does a lot of Coreboot work for AMD and other firms, has ported the AMD Lamar reference board for Coreboot. AMD Lamar is a consumer reference board used for AMD Kaveri APUs of the FP3 socket.

After previously adding the Family 15h Model 30 support to Coreboot, this Kaveri reference motherboard is now supported by Coreboot.

With Coreboot, Lamar is booting fine to DOS, Ubuntu 14.10, and Windows 7 according to Bruce Griffith of Sage Electronic Engineering. This new board port is just over 2,200 lines of code.
