Hi; this is a pretty common question, which we talk about on our wiki page here: https://wiki.qemu.org/Documentation/Platforms/ARM The underlying reason why you need this on Arm but not on x86 is that for x86 every single piece of x86 hardware is pretty much identical. For Arm (as part of its history in the embedded space) the general rule is that every board is different. thanks -- PMM
