coreboot distributions

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.

Libreboot

  • Deblobbed coreboot, officially supporting a handful of devices.
  • libreboot.org
