Documentation is now handled by the same processes we use for code: Add something to the Documentation/ directory in the coreboot repo, and it will be rendered to https://doc.coreboot.org/. Contributions welcome!
Known Bad Configurations
These configurations should have been mentioned on HCL if they work in some situations.
|Manufacturer||Model||Size||Speed||Type||ECC||CPU||Mainboard||Mainboard PCB revision||Firmware||Fails under proprietary BIOS||Known requirements to trigger bug||Failure Notes|
|Micron||MT36KSF1G72PZ-1G6M1FF||8GB||DDR3-1600||Registered||Yes||Opteron 6262HE||ASUS KGPE-D16||1.03G||Internal development version of coreboot||Yes||Two DIMMs on one channel (i.e. a DIMM in at least one black slot)||Severe memory corruption; coreboot goes into a reboot loop and the proprietary BIOS hangs on starting its PXE ROM(s). Leaving all black slots empty restores normal operation.|
|Micron / HP||MT36JSF2G72PZ-1G6E1LG (HP: 672612-081)||16GB||DDR3-1600||Registered||Yes||Opteron 6276||ASUS KGPE-D16||1.03G||Libreboot 20160907||No||More than 2 DIMMs per CPU||Cannot boot (works fine with proprietary BIOS).|
|Hynix/Hyundai||HMT151R7BFR4C-H9||4GB||DDR3-1333||Registered||Yes||Opteron 6276||ASUS KGPE-D16||1.03G||Libreboot 20160907||No||Two DIMMs on one channel (i.e. a DIMM in at least one black slot).||Crashes / Reboots (always boots).
On a side note: without proper cooling these gets really warm with Libreboot, unlike proprietary BIOS. However, the heat is not the problem but might be a symptom. (works fine with proprietary BIOS).
|Micron||MT36KSF2G72PZ-1G6E1FE||16GB||DDR3-1600||Registered||Yes||Opteron 6308||ASUS KGPE-D16||1.04||Internal development version of coreboot (2017)||Yes||One DIMMs on one channel (i.e. the DIMM is in the topmost one orange slot, A2)||coreboot cannot send MCT request and goes into a reboot loop; the proprietary BIOS also enters a (quite fast) reboot loop before the VGA port can be initialized. These modules do not work at all with either coreboot or the proprietary BIOS regardless of slot location!|
Both Micron DIMMs tested fails at >64GB with two CPUs, coincident?
