I see others have 'open hardware' ThinkPads... I have Freenix LibreBoot T500 and want to install either SeaBIOS for (already have) LibreBoot or for (deblobbed) CoreBoot.

I'm not much a hardware person: paid Libiquity to install LibreBoot... didn't realize it's not really a BIOS; only loader; want a BIOS back; know you can install SeaBIOS but there aren't instructions; stable LibreBoot is five years outdated.

I asked freenode Internet Relay Chat (IRC) #libreboot, but main maintainer isn't around; mainly one person (hyper-technical; not as literary/social as average) is who did far less than Libiquity but claims that isn't related (Libiquity was a much larger contributor to LibreBoot than him) but that if you point out a commit page isn't instructions, they threaten ban; say ask Libiquity. I felt like it, and recommend Libiquity--they did a good (hardware) job but don't really want to bother them for a software issue that should be documented by LibreBoot for everyone... for now I don't want to go back to #libreboot (blaming users) but wondering if anyone here went through process installing SeaBIOS?

Seems BBCode is by people focused on popularity of the world wide web (WWW: ) [url=irc://freenode/#libreboot]#libreboot[/url].
