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!
This page describes how to use coreboot on the HP DL145 G3 1U server. It is maintained by ElAngelo.
The manual of the machine is available at hp.com.
The main reason for the port is that the BIOS from HP does not support hardware virtualization on the CPUs.
The following status was achieved with patches. Current svn revision (r4080) does NOT support this machine. See the thread on the mailing list with initial support for this mainboard.
