Thank you. There's a problem when coreboot tries to execute the VGA
ROM. You mentioned that the ROM was extracted from /dev/mem. It would
be even better if you could extract the VGA ROM from a BIOS image on
disk, instead of from the running system.

Another approach would be to disable execute of the option ROM in
coreboot. This is not something coreboot can do well. If you need an
option ROM (such as a VGA ROM) then it's better to use SeaBIOS
because you then get a complete BIOS environment in the system, and
option ROMs want that very much.
