Well, in that case, you need to either wait or there are test images at http://80.235.90.220 <http://80.235.90.220/> (sorry for ip;) Also older ones at http://dlc-int.openindiana.org/tsoome/ <http://dlc-int.openindiana.org/tsoome/>. However, the oi/illumos does not yet provide uefi boot.

As another obstacle, you will probably also need usb3, which is getting close, but not yet integrated. And finally, I do suspect you also will be missing GPIO, which we just do not support (yet).

As there is only quite small group of people doing reviews and contributions, things do not move as fast as we might hope.

rgds,
toomas
