The wiki is being retired!

Documentation is now handled by the same processes we use for code: Add something to the Documentation/ directory in the coreboot repo, and it will be rendered to Contributions welcome!


Thanks for your interest in Packard Bell Easynote LM (aka ms2290) port.


  • Inserting headphones doesn't automatically turn off the speakers

Tested and works (;a=tree;f=packardbell/ms2290/4.0-6558-gb98ab4a/2014-08-01T17:32:20Z;hb=HEAD unless otherwise specified):

  • RAM module combinations of 2G+2G
  • Sound (speaker, headphones, internal mic)
  • USB
  • SD card slot
  • touchpad
  • keyboard
  • Linux (through GRUB-as-payload)
  • Wifi (minipcie slot)
  • Video (only internal is tested)
  • Battery indicator
  • Thermal management
  • Hotkeys
  • Internal HDD
  • Webcam
  • suspend to RAM (S3)
  • DVD
  • LAN

Not recently retested:

  • Windows (through SeaBIOS; you have to use extracted VGA blob, dumped from memory isn't good enough)

Not tested:

  • Mic-in (probably works)
  • Second MiniPCIe port
  • HDMI
  • VGA-out

proprietary components status

  • CPU Microcode
  • VGA option rom (optional): you need it if you wantgraphics in SeaBIOS but most payloads should work without it (text mode or corebootfb mode)
  • ME(Management Engine) => you do not have to touch it(just leave it where it is)
  • EC(Embedded Controller) => you do not have to touch it(just leave it where it is)
