Hi Tom and Niklas,
What about the DB_PORT programming header? Is the dual BIOS stored on the MX25L1606EM2I-12G chip? I'm not interested in USB3 that much although it's a nice and useful feature but it seems to be a very good board in general.

>> thanks for your answer, I'm fully aware of the situation, my question was more directed to people (if there are any) who own that MB, perhaps work on coreboot support, or have considered it and abanonded it in the initial phase or even made progress but were unable to continue due to various circumstances. No answer most likely means that there isn't anyone who owns this board so far, so I just pushed all information I could find out without buying that board in case someone wants to buy one and add coreboot support for it.
