Very nice! It sounds to this newb as if it's hacky as hell, but it's nice to finally know what the problem was! Have you also dropped a line to the coreboot mailing list? Even though I ordered a dGPU G505s I got shipped one without, so sadly I can't add this to the ifixit I plan to finish this

I believe, something like this could be reliably determined only by experiment. but 16 GB DDR3 SO-DIMMs are very expensive - especially now, when the RAM prices hiked and 4 GB of DDR3 now costs like 8 GB :P Currently it makes much more sense to get extra coreboot supported hardware (e.g. some
