I'm aware of only one hardware platform that explicitely supports openbmc,
and it was rather expensive. Apparently it can run on quite a few other
boards, and I'd like to try to get a list of things I might be able to get on
ebay... I don't need something new to experiment with... old and well
documented seems better to me.
I don't think you'd ever install the *SDK* on the target system.
You compile it with the build system on an ubuntu server or equivalent
container, and then install the resulting image as the BMC image.
That might require a JTAG load for some systems, and then OTA afterwards.
