Thanks for your hint. I will do so. 
Sorry for asking at the wrong place.

Right. Okay. That's totally fine. :-)

But why providing SeaBIOS then?
Isn't it needless/redundant/superfluous for booting free software?

Btw, my intent was: Using another free brick in the wall is fine for 
the goal to build a free house in the future, even if there are still 
some of the windows proprietary for now. Yes, I knew there are people 
insisting of building a house either 100% free or not at all.  ;-)

I've seen coreboot wiki is mentioning Windows on x60, 
but I don't know if that applies to me or not:

(and btw. it's not Windows 7 here...)

Nevermind, I'll ask at the coreboot mailing list.

(Right after I tested if upstream has the same issues. Fingers crossed 
to not brick my x60 by using a self compiled BIOS replacement.)
