So far it boots up to a FILO prompt for me, but there is an issue with IDE drive detection, it seems. I'll investigate.
== Booting coreboot ==
Booting from SATA (port 1 tested so far) works fine.
 
* Booting from SATA port 1 works using [[FILO]] and this config (I have my root filesystem on '''/dev/sda2''' as viewed from Linux):
  kernel=hda2:/vmlinuz initrd=/initrd.img root=/dev/sda2 console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200
* Booting from SATA port 2 doesn't yet work, I'll investigate.
* Booting from IDE doesn't yet work, I'll investigate.

Building coreboot

Currently there is no special target for the ASUS A8V-E Deluxe in coreboot. Instead, we use the ASUS A8V-E SE target.

You have to apply the following patch to svn so the board boots (at least when using a Sempron CPU which doesn't seem to support an LDT frequency of 1000MHz):

Index: src/mainboard/asus/a8v-e_se/cache_as_ram_auto.c
===================================================================
--- src/mainboard/asus/a8v-e_se/cache_as_ram_auto.c     (revision 3127)
+++ src/mainboard/asus/a8v-e_se/cache_as_ram_auto.c     (working copy)
@@ -308,7 +308,7 @@
        needs_reset |= optimize_link_incoherent_ht(sysinfo);

        /* Fixme it assumes that 1000MHz LDT is selected. */
-       needs_reset |= k8t890_early_setup_car(16, 0x6);
+       needs_reset |= k8t890_early_setup_car(16, 0x5);

        if (needs_reset) {
                print_debug("ht reset -\r\n");

Then, place your payload (usually FILO) into /tmp/filo.elf and build coreboot as usual:

$ cd target
$ ./buildtarget asus/a8v-e_se && cd asus/a8v-e_se/asus_a8v-e_se && make

The resulting coreboot.rom (512 KB) can now be flashed on a ROM chip.

Booting coreboot

  • Booting from SATA port 1 works using FILO and this config (I have my root filesystem on /dev/sda2 as viewed from Linux):
 kernel=hda2:/vmlinuz initrd=/initrd.img root=/dev/sda2 console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200
  • Booting from SATA port 2 doesn't yet work, I'll investigate.
  • Booting from IDE doesn't yet work, I'll investigate.
