The wiki is being retired!

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 with 3 or more DIMMs per CPU (works fine with proprietary BIOS).
Hynix/Hyundai HMT151R7BFR4C-H9 4GB DDR3-1333 Registered Yes Opteron 6276 ASUS KGPE-D16 1.03G Libreboot 20160907 No Crashes / Reboots (always boots) when using black slots on motherboard, thus the maxiumum is 4 DIMMs per CPU. 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).

Both Micron DIMMs tested fails at >64GB with two CPUs, coincident?
