MinnowBoard Max/Turbot - UEFI Firmware

MinnowBoard Turbot is a low cost, commercially available, reference platform for hardware, software and firmware developers who wish to work within an open environment. Design specifications and materials have been provided to the open community, encouraging platform experimentation and derivative designs. This page provides material to support UEFI firmware development for MinnowBoard Turbot, Turbot derivatives, and the original MinnowBoard Max platform.

  • Binary Firmware Images ("UEFI BIOS"): 32-bit and 64-bit UEFI builds, with Debug and Release images. Includes flash update utilities and release notes.
  • Binary Object Modules for which source code is not available due to the Intellectual property for both Intel silicon (microprocessor and chipset) and third party components.
  • Instructions for integrating the EDK II source tree (BSD license) with the Binary Object Modules to build firmware.
