== How to support a new board ==


People often ask how to support a new board. If you are willing to put in the effort to write the port, then there is a good chance that you will succeed. Supporting a new board that uses a chipset that is already supported by coreboot is much less work for obvious reasons than supporting a new board with an unsupported chipset. Supporting a new board can take from an hour to over a year of your time.

Supporting a new board that uses a chipset that is already supported by coreboot is much less work for obvious reasons than supporting a new board with an unsupported chipset. Don't expect a new board to be supported by developers, especially an Intel board just because you would like it supported. Supporting a new board can take from an hour to over a year of time. If you would like a new board supported then you should expect to do the work on the port yourself.
