Support/Broadwell

Broadwell core Intel processors are popular in recent higher-end Chromebooks.

Factory firmware support for coreboot and SeaBIOS is generally good on Broadwell models (with a few bugs), but custom firmware is also available -- see Firmware.

One firmware bug relates to video init in early boot, which prevents the display of the GRUB boot menu. This can be worked around with GRUB settings:

  1. Add settings to /etc/default/grub
    • GRUB_TERMINAL=console
    • GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768
  2. Run sudo update-grub
