Coreboot

http://www.coreboot.org
Free BIOS replacement

Coreboot is a free BIOS replacement, writeable to flash. It boots up the computer, then runs a payload that loads a bootlader, such as GRUB, from the preferred storage medium. The BIOS/UEFI implementation on many computers is one of the last few pieces of non-free software, and Coreboot may replace it.

The list of currently supported motherboards is growing, and Coreboot could use your help porting it to more.

Note that according to the 'Secure'/Restricted Boot specifications, Microsoft-approved UEFI implementations cannot be easily replaced with firmware of a user's choice, short of using JTAG or a soldering iron.
