There’s huge potential for this ‘unbrickable’ open source BIOS now it’s running on modern Intel PCs

A motherboard’s BIOS is often seen as sacrosanct in how it offers low-level control over a gaming PC. However, turns out that’s actually not true, and your motherboard’s BIOS is just as open to fiddling with as any other PC part. If you’re brave enough.

An open source Linux consulting company called 3mdeb has successfully loaded an open source BIOS, called Coreboot, and a firmware distribution framework of its own creation, called Dasharo, onto a modern Intel Alder Lake Z690 motherboard from MSI.
