Start by comparing the added board (VIA reference board) with the
Jetway board, chip wise. If they are using the same superio you could
try simply booting a coreboot image built for the VIA board on the
Jetway board, and it might work.

Maybe you can find a volunteer, but everyone is busy.. Also, trying
to do development of this kind without physical access to the
hardware kills the spirit. There are often many problems to solve,
and it is really heavy work to try to debug them via the internet.

It seems to be using mostly VIA chips. Maybe you are lucky and a VIA
reference board image will just work. We are interested in any test
