Brief board info

HP EliteBook 2560p is a 12.5" laptop you can read more about here:


Installation of Libreboot

You can actually just compile the Libreboot ROM for this, and flash the entire ROM, then flash it. The coreboot project proper, has information about this:


Refer to the coreboot guide for flashing instructions, and you can build the images for it in Libreboot like so:

./build boot roms hp2560p_8mb

More information about building ROM images can be found in the build guide.

This is a Sandybridge board which means that a neutered ME image is required if you wish to flash the ME region. Libreboot’s build system automatically downloads, neuters (using me_cleaner) and inserts this if compiling from source.

If you’re using Libreboot release ROM images, the ME image has been scrubbed and you must re-insert it. Use the information on this guide to know how to do that:

Insert binary blobs on Intel Sandybridge/Ivybridge/Haswell platforms

You may also wish to change the default MAC address if you’re planning to use the onboard Intel Gigabit Ethernet. You can do this using the information in the same guide linked above, or read the nvmutil manual:

Modify MAC addresses with nvmutil.
