another thing that should be dealt with is the situation with ck804 
boards. basically it seems as if we should clear one byte on all of
those to disable some chipset-based write protection.

the board enable committed for the EP-8NPA7I is incomplete. it needs the
following as well for the oem BIOS(es):

if that is applied in one way or another, the same board enable also
works for the EP-9NPA7I:

if we want to distinguish those two, we would need something similar to
this, because the pci ids are not enough (but we probably do not):

another board that relies on the first patch is the ASUS P5N-E SLI
(although it needs an additional board enable according to joshua).
it was reported once back when the EP-8NPA7I board enable was developed
and also recently by Joël Obrecht (who agreed to test any patches btw).

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
