Intel processors with Broadwell cores are very popular in newer higher-end ChromeOS devices.

Factory firmware support for coreboot and SeaBIOS is spotty, but custom firmware is also available for all Broadwell models as well -- see Firmware.

Full ROM flash is available from CoolStar: (for running Linux, you can follow the flashing instructions and install Linux instead of Windows)

  • Bypasses the white "OS verification is OFF" screen
  • Installs a complete ROM containing a coreboot build and a working SeaBIOS** Removes the ability to run ChromeOS natively, creating a small risk of bricking your device
  • Will wipe out all product data
  • This option is the most invasive and may include bugs or idiosyncrasies that the stock firmware does not
  • Fixes Graphics issues associated with the RW_LEGACY
  • Fixes several issues related to ACPI
  • Enables VT-x, allowing virtual machines to run faster
  • Allows booting Linux, Windows and even Mac OS!
