No go for this one :(
Flashed coreboot v2 (kontron), added video rom, adjusted for 512KB.
flashrom didnt work, so i used my programmer with the corresponding 
FWH/LPC+ adaptor.

System turned on. Blank screen.

Wasnt able to measure voltages on the chip socket, as my voltimeter 
battery died.. so it will be for another time.
