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

In order to easier coreboot debugging(really usefull when something goes wrong) you should consider making your computer coreboot-ready before installing coreboot.

Steps

Output for production

If you have a serial port, you should consider Enabling the Serial Console in:

  • Coreboot
  • The payload(if you use Seabios from coreboot's "make menuconfig" it's already done for you)
  • The bootloader like grub
  • The kernel(like the linux kernel)
  • The init system(systemd, sysvinit etc...)
