	I tried to boot windows 7(build 7000) from HDD, but I still can
not boot. Which the screen says:"A disk read error occurred, Press
Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"
And the serial debug says:
Fail handle_1aXX:274
A:0000bb00 b:0000aa55 c:0000fff6 d:00000080
si:00007e00 di:0000800 ds:00000000 es:00000000
ip:000006e7 cs:0000000 f:00000246 r:00007bdc

I had check there is no NO.bb in BIOS int1A, Did you fixed any
configuration about seabios? In coreboot I just changed the
/src/arch/i386/boot/tables as what you concerned in your patches.

And Windows XP, it still reboot again and again.

Did you try to install it or you ran it from some HDD? Maybe powernow
issue. Did 
you fix what Carl Daniel suggested?
