I am trying to install OpenBSD on HP Chromebook 11 G4 with CoreBoot (UEFI) installed through MrChromeBox firmware-util script.
During the initial boot prompt (when you see the
boot>) I can easily type anything there (like entering into User Kernel Config with
boot -c for example).
But after loading the installation program each time I press any key, and I mean literally any key including power button or enter, I need to wait for 1-2 seconds before chromebook responds. What is even worse is that each key-press is recorded/recognized multiple times.
I have already found that setting
sysctl can help but unfortunately I can't get past installation (typing "done" is not an option and it is required in some places because of failed load of initial iwm0 firmware)
I know it might be the tip of an iceberg but I would like to begin with fixing the key-presses issue during an installation process.
Since this suppose to be a question there should be at least one question mark.
Is there any way to set
kern.timecounter.hardware=acpihpet0 from UKC or any other way to fix each key being pressed multiple times during installation ?
As a side note: from I can see most things during boot are not configured (like
acpicpu at acpi0 not configured or
Intel Bay Trail LPC .... not configured.
Oh and I have already tried using an external keyboard with no luck since it does not work during installation program for some reason.
Just to preempt question since I did not mention this in the original question.
The installation program does not detect any disk except for the build-in emmc. If it was not for this I could simply install the OpenBSD with autoinstall (multiple "a" count as 1 in that particular prompt and naming the response file like "bbbbb" works).
Because of the above and the fact there is only wireless connection build-in I can't get sets necessary to finish the installation. I've managed to get past disk layout stage but there is nowhere I can get the sets from since the installation medium is also unavailable.
I have managed to install OpenBSD via Linux MX live usb with virtualbox installed.
Sadly the keyboard is still not working. Any external usb device is not recognized either.
When I press the power button I can see there is an info with something like:
I will keep this question updated.
