SageBIOS™ BSP for Gizmo

Sage is offering its flagship product, SageBIOS™ – a commercial distribution of the open-source coreboot project, to the GizmoSphere community. The BSP (Board Support Package) free download (registration required) includes all of the source code required to build your own BIOS binary image (with the exception of the video BIOS, which is only available in binary due to licensing restrictions). The download also includes instructions for integrating the code with your EDK and performing the build.

Pre-Compiled Binaries

Not ready to build your own BIOS from source? Two pre-compiled binary files are also available and ready to write to your Gizmo flash. This updated firmware fixes the known issues that users have been experiencing with SATA3.
