ASUS P8H61-M Pro¶
This page describes how to run coreboot on the ASUS P8H61-M Pro.
|Dual BIOS feature||no|
The flash IC is located right next to one of the SATA ports:
The main SPI flash can be accessed using flashrom. By default, only the BIOS region of the flash is writable. If you wish to change any other region (Management Engine or flash descriptor), then an external programmer is required.
The following command may be used to flash coreboot:
$ sudo flashrom --noverify-all --ifd -i bios -p internal -w coreboot.rom
The use of
--noverify-all is required since the Management Engine
region is not readable even by the host.
- There is no automatic, OS-independent fan control. This is because
the Super I/O hardware monitor can only obtain valid CPU temperature
readings from the PECI agent, whose complete initialisation is not
publicly documented. The
coretempdriver can still be used for accurate CPU temperature readings.
