Changes that are required to support a processor in Coreboot


Hi,

1) I am doing a study on modifying coreboot to support the latest Intel i Second generation processor. I need to know as to what changes will be required in the code to support the new processor.

2) How much time (in months) will be required to carry the required changes?

3) Also are there other BIOS' that I should look at besides coreboot?


Thanks,
cruiser

Hi Everyone,

I found the answer to the question by writing to the Coreboot mailing list. A few helpful indviduals were kind enough to help me out with the answers.

1) I am doing a study on modifying coreboot to support the latest Intel i Second generation processor. I need to know as to what changes will be required in the code to support the new processor.

A -> Drivers need to be written for Northbridge, Southbridge, Super IO etc..

2) How much time (in months) will be required to carry the required changes?
A - > About 6 months to a year depending upon the propgrammes expertise.


3) Also are there other BIOS' that I should look at besides coreboot?
A -> I also had a look at U-Boot and UEFI.
