This board works with target/bcom/winnetp680, except that it needs rev 3566 of src/southbridge/via/vt8237r.
Works somewhat. See known problems below. Work is in progress to fix these issues.

This page describes how to use coreboot on the BCOM WinNET P680 motherboard. This board is used in the HP/Neoware e140 (aka CA22) and Igel 4210LX Winestra thin clients.

This page is a work in progress.

Status

Works somewhat. See known problems below. Work is in progress to fix these issues.

Known problems

  • L1/L2 cache are running extremely slow, 11-12MB/s per Memtest86+. As a result, loading kernel/initrd is very slow
  • irq_tables.c from the factory BIOS does not work. The epia-cn table has been substituted, but it has problems too (Ethernet doesn't work right: 50% packet loss.). A workaround is to use the kernel parameter "irqpoll"
  • Boot log shows INT15 handler isn't working
  • hda in Linux is hde in FILO
