I use an asus KGPE D16 with Libreboot and a Thinkpad x230 with coreboot (with the blobs taken out)

Is it hard to coreboot a x230?
and how did u remove the “extra” blobs?

no, but not because i don’t want to - i couldn’t find an open BIOS for my machine

Just take them out when compiling.

So, where do you all usually purchase these open source BIOS’s from? They look a bit on the expensive side!

if you have compatible hardware you can install the firmware yourself - here’s the site for coreboot - you can also buy PCs with open source firmware preinstalled - maybe someone can list some more vendors cause i know there’s several
