Target version:-


  • port a coreboot supported mainboard from x86 to x86_64 (ROMSTAGE / RAMSTAGE only)
  • Get familiar with protected mode and long mode
  • Learn about paging
  • Fix existing code to support x86_64 (struct packing, linker alignment, ...)
  • Might need to write assembler code
  • Write Documentation
