Looks nice. However, I was unable to find out whether it uses a LPC or
SPI ROM. According to this picture
there is at least no socketed ROM.
on the right, below the DIMM slot is a Winbond ACPI controller. There is
not even a single PLCC32 chip on the board.
The only option left is a soldered SOIC8 or SOIC16 SPI ROM. The SOIC8
chip below the SuperI/O here

unmarked (except a green spot), but it could be what we're looking for.

Marc, can you find out which ROM chip this board uses so that we can
assess the coreboot-friendliness of it?
