Do you have a second computer and a null modem serial cable? If so,
please hook it up and see what's coming out of the serial port (I hope
you have the same super io). VGA is not currently working on the i810.
Also, I hope you have the original BIOS on another chip, some registers
are different on the i815 and it won't work out of the box.
