Good Morning, Uwe:
I checked for the BIOS support, so, here we go:
Calibrating delay loop... ok
No LinuxBIOS table found.
Found chipset "NVIDIA MCP55": Enabling flash write... OK.
Pm49FL004 found at physical address: 0xfff80000
Flash part is Pm49FL004 (512 KB)
No operations were specified.
(And I thought it was an SST49LF family flash). I will try out the bios with
this board, just let me buy a couple of blank pm49LF004 parts (incidentally,
i am glad it's pm49lfxxx and not sst49lfxxx, the pm49 family is really easy
to get here!)
Ok, so, after I get my new chips, what proceeds? (I will patch whatever
needs to be patched, too!)
