Everything works fine. Applied Intel ME Cleaner. Suspend works. Cheap, powerful mini desktop with PS/2 mouse+keyboard :wink: I love it.

Added USB 3.0 pcie express card, cheap one with via chip.

If anyone is interested, i can make a coreboot build “tutorial”.

Thank you @dispuser5132 for this HCL report, which is now online.

Note that we now have two positive reports for this machine. And it has PS/2 ports for mouse and keyboard!

Would you say that Qubes OS R4.0.4 installs without workarounds?

If so I would love to add this as the first desktop to the community-recommended list of computers.

Yep add it. No workarounds needed.

@dispuser5132 … thank you. It’s done! Congrats for nominating the first desktop on the list!

Hi, very interested in a tutorial for a machine like this!

Can coreboot be installed on very similar HP hardware a with similar BIOS?

Yes please. Would appreciate the tutorial very much.
