So good news and bad news.

Good news is that I have been able to boot OpenBSD, bad ones is that I risked to flash a rom of a donor, so now I have a propietary BIOS again. The docking station didn't had a serial port, so I couldn't debug the booting of OpenBSD. After one month more or less and out of desperation, I saw no other choice, even with the risk to brick it. All to get the precious propietary blob of the VGA BIOS, till the booting problem is sorted out. I had to remove the Wifi card, but I will deal with this problem later, it's a problem with the whitelist.

Following this documentation I have been able to capture the VGA rom from the Linux kernel:

So the question is... Can I go back to and flash again libreboot with the Lenovo BIOS there now that I have the VGA propietary blob? It would be a pitty that after getting the libreboot laptop I wouldn't be able to use it with libreboot.

It keeps having the same problem, I don't see any output in the
screen, I get to the biosboot and last line is the one that I think is
seeding the random number generator. I can't log into any terminal,
although it seems that it keeps going on for the hardrive led, and the
block num led, but you just can't see anything on the screen. I will
try to debug this through serial port or maybe I could ssh into the
box from another one.
