MinnowBoard MAX

The binary SageBIOS boot ROM image, which is easily flashed on the
development board’s SPI Flash device, is based on the Intel® Firmware
Support Package (Intel® FSP) and coreboot® open source initialization. The
SageBIOS OSP replaces UEFI firmware that comes installed on both versions
of MinnowBoard MAX and will support booting a greater variety of operating
systems, including FreeBSD and a variety of RTOS, as well as legacy
operating systems such as older versions of Microsoft® Windows and even DOS.
The SageBIOS OSP will support all the operating systems supported by the
native UEFI firmware, such as Windows® and Linux®. In addition, the
SageBIOS OSP will boot both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems with a
single boot image.
To download the firmware, please visit www.se-eng.com/minnow/.
In the download you will receive instructions on how to program the ROM on
your development board. Welcome to the world of open source development on
Intel x86 processors.
