General Documentation for the Zerocat Label.
Product Information ZC-T400

Dear Customer,

thank you for having purchased a ZC-T400 Free Software Laptop!

This Machine is a very special device, for it runs with free BIOS software right from power-up, no proprietary binary blobs included!

However, no system is perfect, so isn't this one. Please get familiar with your computer carefully. Please avoid modifications of your system settings without having accumulated some basic background knowledge in advance.

Note due to the original hardware setup, this machine still has a functioning — however heavily disabled — Intel Manageability Engine on board.

Scope of Delivery

Your system will boot up with the Zerocat Background Image which promotes the fact that your device has been flashed with the true free-design Zerocat Chipflasher.

Then, a first GRUB menu will pop up. If you want to select a different boot option than the default, just hit any key to stop the two seconds timeout.
