General Documentation for the Zerocat Label.
Product Information ZC-X230

Dear Customer,

thank you for having purchased a ZC-X230 Free Software Laptop!

This Machine is a very special device, for it runs with free BIOS software right from power-up!

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.

Due to the original hardware setup, this machine still has a functioning Intel Manageability Engine (IME) on board. Its firmware has been stripped down in order to reduce security issues, so please note that this device is delivered in an experimental state.

Scope of Delivery

Your system will boot up with the Zerocat Background Image which promotes the fact that your device has been flashed with Zerocat’s Free-Design 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.
