I was wondering if anyone had tried putting Coreboot on their X62. jaspen-meyer put the thought in my head since he was working on BIOS flashing and mentioned coreboot.
It seems that certain Chromebooks (Pixel 2015, for example) come with the same CPU and there seems to have been some work in getting it to run on them. I haven't asked anyone on their mailing list and I'm not enough of a software dev to try and build a working version myself, but it seems like it would be quite neat if that worked.
Of course, there might be some obvious roadblocks that I don't see due to my inexperience with the subject, but I was curious.
What do people here think?

Here is the coreboot overview for developers wanting to port to a new motherboard (x62 in our case):
https://www.coreboot.org/Developer_Manu ... _new_board
The first task is figure out which hardware is in the x62 hardware. The next step is to find 'supported coreboot board' with the same hardware.
There are three main categories of 'hardware':
1. cpu family
Digging around my system I found the following:
1. cpu family = Signature: Type 0, Family 6, Model 61, Stepping 4
2. chipset = 9 Series
3. superIO = ???
