[coreboot] x201t + windows7

I got a checked build as well as a working `original` usbdebug device (thanks to peter and cristi).
My windows got nice after I disabled lowmem with `/lowmem`.
What does this means? I thought this might be a problem with the memory map? Or pci management?
Missing out a memory block to mark forbidden? VideoRAM? VBIOS? [...]

I've disabled a workaround for grub to free SeaBIOS from marking 0x0 - 0xfff as RAM.
But doesn't help.
I still get a bluescreen '... stop 0x7e'. The internet suggest a look on (video) drivers.

Ok, I forgotten this.  I'll take another try with my hdd win 7, maybe it gives me more information
with usb debug than the installer does.
Another thing on my list is disabling and hide useless pci device.  Starting with ethernet ;).

@Patrick: any further suggestions?
