Demo image

This image contains a Coreboot with SeaBIOS and VGAbios from Plex86/Bochs with a hack to start VIA IGP (patch on ML). This rom contains 100% free software! I did not test graphic VGA modes, textmode is known to work. Be prepared for that. Otherwise the ROM should behave at least as normal BIOS. It should be able to boot system just as proprietary BIOS was.

Warning: Windows won't boot with the hacked VGA image. You will need to exchange the image for original VGA ROM
