Google releases Intel Sandybridge support for coreboot



84 days ago.

Google has released a major piece of coreboot support for the Intel Sandybridge processor and Cougar Point southbridge.

TianoCore is an open source implementation of UEFI, the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface. UEFI (formerly EFI) is intended to replace the traditional PC BIOS. TianoCore as in implementation cannot do that, as it lacks the code to do hardware initalization. Since hardware initialization is exactly what coreboot does, the combination of coreboot + TianoCore is the most straightforward option to provide a complete, opensource UEFI environment.
