My idea was to just desolder the INIT# pin, never the entire chip. If
it works without desoldering anything then that's good news. :)

Could you try also with a resistor, instead of shorting directly to
ground? About 10k. That would be nicer to the chipset output drivers.
(I wanted to desolder the pin completely for that reason too.)
