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!

Introduction

Our long term goal is to replace the common coreboot payload FILO with a coreboot-capable version of GRUB2.

Status

Patrick Georgi has been working on GRUB2 for LinuxBIOS during the Google Summer of Code 2007.
