I have a pc with a Gigabyte GA-K8N-SLI
I would like tu use coreboot with her.
This motherboard is designed to support AMD processor on a Sokect 939.
1. NVIDIA nForce4 SLI MCPs (media and communication processors) : NVIDIA
2. Super I/O: ITE IT8712 chip
3. Integrated peripherals
- CICADA8201 Gigabit LAN PHY chip
- Realtek ALC850 Audio AC'97 Codec
This card seems to be similard to the already supported Asus A8N-SLI.
The major difference than I have noticed is the presence of an integreted
LAN controller in the Gigabyte motherboard and not on the Asus motherboard.
As the chispet and Super I/O seems to be already supported, there is a risk
that is impossible to start the system once flashed with coreboot ?
Is it essential to have tools (like hot top flash) to have the possibility
to restore the system ?
And where I can buy one of this tools (It's not indicate on the page
PLCC sokets are not hard to find, but plcc bios override system are more
difficult to find.
PS: Sorry for my aproximative english.
