I am here to help. As a quick census, here is where the buildrom payloads
stand with regard to SimNow:
LAB -> You are working on this right now
etherboot -> Unknown. Embaressingly, I have never gotten network to work
on SimNow ... :(
filo -> Needs a minor workaround, but works
ofw -> unknown
openbios -> unknown
memtest -> works
kernel -> works
coreinfo -> works
tint -> works
grub2 - > unknown
I'm beginning to think that we should post ROMs for SimNow + these payloads
on the coreboot website (like we do with Qemu), so that people can play with
them. Would that be of interest to anybody?
