This is an S3 Virge graphics card.

Could you try with a different graphics card too?

  I'll try.  I don't have any other right now.

And while un-inited int vector means that some int call in the ROM
was unsuccessful the ROM seems to exit as it should.

Here coreboot tries to execute also the ROM on the Silicon Image
PCI0680 ATA-133 controller, and if this is the last output you get
on serial, it fails.

Removing the ATA card really doesn't change anything?


  After removing the ATA card, the system boots to Linux.  But I need to use that card.
