Yip, I have start the system with vga=normal and taken a fresh vga.bios 
extracted with awardeco from the original factory bios. (The old one was 
definitivly corrupt)

btw. flashbios seems unable to handle WINBOND W29C020

./testbios --abseg /dev/mem -s 32768 aw512n.bin

I get 3 columns of output, which stops after 1-2 seconds
The screen seems froozen, but at the bottom I have 3 blinking "cursors"
I can do what I want, only a Hardreset takes effect ;)

I will try to pipe the output, but this is hard on a readonly filesystem :D
