Note: These snapshots are for people, who use Linux as operating system and are able to build software from the source code.

There is no easy to install package for people who want to quickly try out a new BIOS on their computer, yet. However, we provide some images for the QEMU emulator to test coreboot (and some payloads) on your Linux, OS X and Windows computers (without having to do any hardware changes). But please note that these images can not be used on any mainboard, they will only work in QEMU!


There is an archive of coreboot snapshots available at A new tar.bz2 file is created whenever the repository changes.


coreboot has switched to using Git for version control. Please see the Git page for much useful information on how to work with Git and Gerrit.
