I went back and managed to misunderstand the post, I thought it was
same motherboard type but two different boards.

hmm. I had always used the bios map as a starting point and it had
worked well for me.
But maybe things are much harder now. It is true that you need to do a bit of
interpretation of the map once the factory BIOS has set it up.
Does resource allocation get all the bits, even legacy ones? Are there
not some resource map values that
a resource allocator can not figure out?
