The xeltek ISP Header + 280U can be used for in-system programming.
That could be useful, if your mb don't have flash socket and flash os soldered in.
This would require one or more (a lot of them for the Xeltek ISP Header) headers on the mainboard. I couldn't find any information about the Xeltek ISP Header. It seems like it might even work on an Enhanced Willem Universal Programmer. It would be simpler to have a single larger header, if the Xeltec ISP Header (adapter) needs to be detached while the mainboard is operating. I'd really prefer something that can remain attached while the mainboard is in operation.
It would even be possible to use the JTAG connector to flash the system BIOS. All Opteron mainboards must include "JTAG" circuits, but usually don't include the two JTAG headers. Adding the headers is quite easy. An open source Opteron JTAG flash programmer is probably won't happen any time soon, although it shouldn't be too difficult to do. Anyone aware of an open source JTAG flash programmer of any kind?

but no Linux support.
Also there is some EEPROM emulator, then only about
download time 1s.
Eyeteck had a bios simulator and debug card for little
money on their
but they don't seem to exist anymore, or have temporary trouble.
it reads some chinese government error message now.. no idea what it means
