Brief board info

HP EliteBook 2570p is a 12.5" laptop very similar to the 2560p. The only real difference seems to be that this shipped with Ivy Bridge processors rather than Sandy Bridge, and has an USB 3.0 port.

You can read more specifications directly from HP:


The following is tested and confirmed working thanks to Johan Ehnberg (johan@molnix.com):

These were visible on lsusb, but no further tests were performed:

Installation of Libreboot

You can actually just compile the Libreboot ROM for this, and flash the entire ROM. The process is the same as 2560p, except you probably have a SOIC-16 chip instead of SOIC-8. Follow these instructions:


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

./build roms hp2570p_16mb

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

This is an Ivy Bridge 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 vendor files 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.
