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!
Note: These snapshots are for people, who use Linux as operating system and are able to build software from the source code.
There is no easy to install package for people who want to quickly try out a new BIOS on their computer, yet. However, we provide some images for the QEMU emulator to test coreboot (and some payloads) on your Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows computers (without having to do any hardware changes). But please note that these images can not be used on any mainboard, they will only work in QEMU!
There is an archive of coreboot snapshots available at qa.coreboot.org. A new tar.bz2 file is created whenever the repository changes.
coreboot has switched to using Git for version control. Please see the Git page for much useful information on how to work with Git and gerrit in coreboot.
Old subversion repository references that still apply will continue to be kept here.
coreboot keeps its development tree in a Git repository.
To clone the coreboot repository (ca. 120 MB data as of 04/2012):
$ git clone http://review.coreboot.org/p/coreboot
If you want the obsolete, unsupported, and experimental coreboot v3 tree (ca. 18 MB data as of 11/2009):
If you want the old, unmaintained and unsupported coreboot v1 tree (ca. 47 MB data as of 10/2008):

While not officially part of the coreboot project, there exist some projects that distribute pre-built (tested) ROM images along with build scripts and user-focused documentation. These "distros" of coreboot will also typically include copies of the source code (or links where to find it) for the version of coreboot used along with payloads such as SeaBIOS, GRUB and so on.
- Deblobbed coreboot, officially supporting a handful of devices.
- Provides images for several Chromebooks
