Hmmm, surprised that worked: the lpc device is really tied to slot 31 when using UEFI. Did the ps2 mouse work ?

Yes the PS2 mouse worked, albeit it didn't quite sync right. I tried the tablet interface but it doesn't work very well for menus.

I first tried to force the resolution to 800x600 but it would get stuck in a boot loop. Definitely needs some work but this is a start :)
