Product Information ZC-X230 Qubes R4.0 Kit

Dear Customer,

thank you for having purchased a ZC-X230 Coreboot Laptop with Qubes R4.0 Kit!

This Machine is a very special device, for it runs with free BIOS software right from power-up and allows for further booting the Qubes R4.0 Installer!

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 proprietary firmware has been stripped down in order to reduce security issues, so please note that this device is delivered in an experimental state.
