coreboot might work on this machine with reasonable effort. You will
however need to get some SPI flashing hardware, and you should be
familiar with a soldering iron in order to solder a SPI socket / header
to your board or some wires to your SPI flash.

An issue might be that there does not seem to be a serial console. You
might need a net20dc USB debug device.
