I looked at the BIOS Savior, but it will do not good since the flash
chip is a TSOP, directly soldered to the board.
The "piggyback" trick seems the most viable solution, but it will
requilre some skill and good equipment ;-).
I will try the LinuxBIOSv2 path, and see where it brings me.

My idea is to piggyback an empty flash chip on top of the BIOS flash
chip, and then use a switch to select the original
BIOS or a newly flashed one.
It's already been done. See if you can find a BIOS Savior:
I am new on this list, and would appreciate some
help to get this
project on the road!
My question is:
What would be the best way to get this started?
Can I use LinuxBIOSv1 or LinuxBIOSv2?
LinuxBIOSv2 seems newer, but it seems to lack support for the W83977F.
The source from V1 for the 83977 can be updated for V2. V2 is the
version that is currently being developed. Hamish was working on the
V2 port for geodes.
