== Building coreboot ==
First, copy your desired [[Payloads|payload]] to '''/tmp/filo.elf''', then extract the VGA BIOS from the original vendor BIOS and copy it to '''/tmp/i810.vga''':
$ wget http://download1.msi.com/files/downloads/bos_exe/6178v21.zip
$ unzip 6178v21.zip
$ cd 6178v21
$ bios_extract W6178IMS.210
$ cp i810.vga /tmp

Building coreboot

First, copy your desired payload to /tmp/filo.elf, then extract the VGA BIOS from the original vendor BIOS and copy it to /tmp/i810.vga:

$ wget http://download1.msi.com/files/downloads/bos_exe/6178v21.zip
$ unzip 6178v21.zip
$ cd 6178v21
$ bios_extract W6178IMS.210
$ cp i810.vga /tmp

See the Build HOWTO for information on how to build coreboot for this board.
