Here is a prebuild rom for 512KB rom chips (it was what was in my board from the beginning).

Make sure you have anothere chip with the original bios on it incase some thing goes wrong or i made a mistake when i build the image.

Good Day Friend. Yes I will try and send the results.

Too bad the Coreboot is no longer tied to Linux, but I want to study in depth and yes he still have bios.

Was looking in my bios I found some scraps that I believe to work in ECS_P6IWP-Fe, bios 2MB.

I really appreciate it if you send me a picture compiled. I'm still studying how to build the mine, but I do not see that long, I just risking.

Thanks for everything. Sorry for any inconvenience. I have a vast collection of motherboards at home, or els with the test and then you step Coreboot results. So we can add even more to the list of cards supported.

I'm not very good with English, so I'm using Google translator. Sorry the inconsistencies in the text.
