good. verbose logs of those tries would be very interesting to see i
think. just to be sure: writing the backup with 0.9.4 was unsuccessful
without running 0.9.3 previously with just the same options?
maybe running 0.9.3 twice would have resulted in the same behavior.
i can't comment further on this one.
if someone reverse engineers the bios, the output of lspci -xxnnvvv
would help us to create a matching board enable.

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
