Description:
This mainboard can run coreboot but cannot boot yet with only free software there is a nonfree binary named SMU that is included as hex in Coreboot source code In addition, I didn't find any external GPU that could work with free software as nonfree software (the video BIOS) is typically required and provided either by the card itself or the BIOS/UEFI when the video card is integrated in the mainboard somewhere or in the CPU chip. It's also unknown when Coreboot will remove support for the board, and many thing doesn't work yet: I have only 1 PCIe connector working, and the UART is not working. As for the rest, I've tested it with 8G and 16G of RAM, and most of the thing seem to work fine.
