See HP Elitebook for instructions of building coreboot for HP Elitebooks.


You need to disassemble the laptop. The flash chip is near the memory slots in SOIC-16 package. You can use an SOIC-16 clip and a ch341a programmer to flash it.

You can also do an internal flashing with flashrom after you have coreboot installed and IFD unlocked.
