The only ROM I see close to the 8100C is the EEPROM that contains
configuration and MAC address. This should only have to be written

Besides normal PCI init required for all PCI devices I very much doubt
that. But speak with your hardware department and your supplier. And
check out the chip data sheet.
Hi All ,

Tyan has two new Geode boards that use the VIA KN400A, VT8237 SB
chipset, Winbond W83697HF LPC I/O chip and Realtek ALC655 AC'97 codec.
One version even offers Gb ethernet. Any news on LinuxBIOS support or
help with support for it?

There are ways to upload to the wiki, but that naturally requires
proper copyright things. I found it easier just to link to some good
images that I found through google images.
If only I could find my digital camera I'd be happy to take some
pictures and donate them to the wiki, but it's been missing for a
while. :( Anyone else with loose flash parts, please beat me to it.
If you don't have wiki write access, just send me the images and I'll
I am running a raid5 array out of an epia M10000, netbooted via the
official bios' PXE.
I have a problem, in that I have to power cycle the thing to get the PXE
thing to boot. if I use the "reboot" command, the PXE fails with
Exiting PXE boot rom
or something similar.
would replacing the original bios with LinuxBios solve my problem ?
I'm tracking the list, CVS, listening to some really kind folks at
Freenode's #openbios (Stepan et al) for some time now, but still did't
find a working Asus TX97 configuration. To the point:
I have an Asus TX97-_E_ which seems to be really diferent from the one that is
claimed supported in the v1 tree (tx97-le) The difference - from what I can
gather not being a hw level programmer - is the cache chips and superIO.
I tried many many config options but still, no serial output, the board is
just plain dead after flashing. Has anyone tried/succeeded in getting
this board to work? Or can anyone point my mistakes if it should be working
and isn't because I might be making some fundamental errors?
The cache chips are two of tmtech t35l6432a-60
The IO chip is: Winbond w83877af
The config I use is here:
And a little modified (for a different superio)tx97le/Config:
The image builds ok, but I am not sure if it is even workable at minimum
with those options on that motherboard.
There was a discussion some time ago on this list about similar problem, but
I don't think I could track down any voice from the developers about this.
Can anyone shed some light on this matter? Point me to any direction?
