This section details how to run coreboot on the Supermicro X11SSH-TF.
The board can be flashed externally using some programmers. The CH341 was found working, while Dediprog won’t detect the chip.
For more details have a look at the flashing tutorial.
The flash IC can be found between the two PCIe slots near the southbridge:
- Intel SGX causes secondary APs to crash (disabled for now).
- Tianocore doesn’t work with Aspeed NGI, as it’s text mode only.
- SMBus / I2C does not work (interrupt timeout)
Tested and working¶
- USB ports
- M.2 2280 NVMe slot
- 2x 10GB Ethernet
- VGA on Aspeed
- Super I/O initialisation
- ECC DRAM detection
- PCIe slots
- TPM on TPM expansion header
- BMC (IPMI)
