coreboot (formerly known as LinuxBIOS) is a Free Software project aimed at replacing the proprietary BIOS (firmware) you can find in most of today's computers. It performs just a little bit of hardware initialization and then executes a so-called payload.

We currently support 211 different mainboards.

  • 100% Free Software (GPL), no royalties, no license fees!
  • Fast boot times (3 seconds to Linux console)
  • Supports many mainboards, chipsets, and payloads

  • Desktop PCs and servers
  • Clusters
  • Embedded solutions
