Note that the wiki page you refer to does *NOT* include any
instructions for building coreboot itself. If you want SeaBIOS for
BIOS compatibility and graphics during booting then you must make
sure to build a coreboot.rom file which includes the correct VGA BIOS
blob for your machine. After you've made a backup of your factory
BIOS you can use bios_extract to take the backup apart, and one of
the oprom files will be the correct VGA BIOS.
