Build tutorial

First, before thinking of using coreboot, make sure you have a backup of your current BIOS image(see Flashrom), and the correct facilities to replace that image, if it becomes corrupt. Assuming you have a backup and restore procedure, continue with the following(which may destroy your board anyways! you have been warned!)

It is recommended that you have a known good PCI video card, a known good single sided PC100 non-ecc dimm, and a known good null modem cable before you proceed, for error recovery.

CoreBoot has multiple Payloads used for the boot process (SeaBIOS, FILO, GRUB2, etc), and you must build a payload first, so that CoreBoot can build it into itsself.

after your payload is compiled(assuming you compiled the FILO payload), copy the resulting file to /tmp/filo.elf, then:

Check out a copy of coreboot-v2

$ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repos/trunk/coreboot-v2

Build the files used to build the bios

$ cd coreboot-v2/targets
$ ./buildtarget asus/p2b-f

Build the bios itsself

$ cd asus/p2b-f/p2b-f
$ make -s

The resulting coreboot.rom is your coreboot ROM image you can flash using flashrom.

Troubleshooting

So, you installed coreboot, and now your board doesn't board boot?

First, check the serial port, and see what sort of output you're getting.

The following is what the section of coreboot on the P2B-F shows for memory setup:

RAM Enable 1: Apply NOP
RAM Enable 2: Precharge all
RAM Enable 3: CBR
RAM Enable 4: Mode register set
RAM Enable 5: Normal operation
RAM Enable 6: Enable refresh
    Enabling refresh (DRAMC = 0x09) for DIMM 00

If in your output, you do not see the 'Enabling refresh' line, your ram chip is not being detected, or refreshed. try a different ram dimm, or a different dimm socket.

If this doesn't solve your problem, remove all the PCI or ISA components other than your PCI video card (you do have one of those, right?). then remove your IDE and floppy devices, and try again. If that still does not give you output ,its time to upload the serial output you're getting after simplifying your hardware configuration to a paste website, and drop by IRC or the mailing list, and ask for help.
