This is a TianoCore issue. Please try a different payload as a workaround.

i have tried now selecting the tianocore edk2 build from coreboot.
which resulted in UefiPayloadPkgIa32x64.dsc not to be found in

as soon as i reverted my configuration back to the original as stated above
the build worked.~~

it was a custom bootsplash img that exceeded the size limits

How big is /tmp/build/t440p/splash/bootsplash.bmp?

i am not sure, as i deleted it.

I managed to create a buildable splash image, as described in this

You can make more space using ME cleaner. I left the FD unlocked and was able to flash an image that spans both chips. Maybe adding a bootsplash is what grew tianocore? My file was only 24kb.

The vendor bios will ignore the changed ME chip.

Did you try increasing the CBFS size? The default is pretty small and doesn't even fit GRUB.

I recommend trying to increase it to 0x2A0000 or 0x7A0000 and trying again.
