I have created a libreboot config for this board and built it with git lbmk. Actually the system is able to boot with this config. I have tested grub only and seabios with grub so far. Booting from usb device works as well. internal hdmi is also working. The cpu fan switches to a lower speed after startup.

Today, 7 September 2021 on libreboot IRC:

09:46 <ollonois1> Hi, I did some further testing on the P5Q-EM board. One thing I recognized was that the power off option in grub is not working. Unknown opcode 0x70 acpi shutdown failed.
09:46 <ollonois1> the other thing is, that I can install trisquel but parabola switched the screen black after the kernel is loading. Don't know if this is a libreboot related issue or something wrong with image nut on my other coreboot system it boots up well.

I'm now following up about this on IRC.

I used the following config https://paste.debian.net/1210745/

I used Seabios + Grub

Hardware beside the P5QL-EM: PCIe X16 NVME SSD adapter in the PCIe graphic card slot (nvme) NVIDIA GT710 in the PCIe X1 Slot (gt710)

senarios tested:

onboard intel graphics -> works with both trisquel and paraola (vga+dvi+hdmi)

onboard intel + nvme -> screen stays black on hdmi + dvi , vga is working

nvme + gt710 -> bootup with trisquel net install image -> works, parabola screen turns black, but there is still a signal.

In all configurations vga output is shifted to the left ( 1 character is missing) also Seabios is not able to boot from the nvme -> Read Error I flashed a coreboot rom and here I was able to boot from the nvme. Only vga output was working with the shifting issue.
