COREBOOT --
If you happen to have an older Sandy Bridge era Intel NUC, it may now supported by mainline Coreboot.

The NUC Board DCP847SKE makes use of the QS77 Express Chipset with a Celeron 847 processor.

This 2013 era NUC now works with Coreboot and nearly all functionality should be working but can be problematic with some RAM modules and the over-current protection for USB ports might not be working.

This is yet another Sandy Bridge era NUC/laptop/system playing nicely with Coreboot with sadly not many newer systems receiving this open-source firmware treatment due to FSP/ME issues and the like.

More details on this latest Coreboot port via Coreboot.org. Other Coreboot-friendly motherboards are outlined via the project's Wiki page. You can also see our other recent Coreboot news for details on new ports and progress.
