HI ST, :D congratulations, I imagine that you had passed some busy days ;).

I am waiting for the processor & ram for the board and in a few days I
try it too :).

One question, how did you disabled the soldered bios?, ( I think that
something related with the #init pin, but how? )

Well again congratulations, regardsss.
