Either board works with coreboot with minor tweaking. Compare the 
chipset, memory type and super IO on boards. If coreboot supports the 
devices then most of the work is already done. Gigabyte boards usually 
have the dual BIOS device circuit that make flash programming a bit more 
complicated. You might have to check if Flashrom ever was patched to 
support it.
