Hello István,

thanks for your report!
The flash chip you mentioned is already marked as tested in the current
version (so please update).
Abit has been bankrupt for quite some time and they eventually shut
down their FTP server. I have backed it up, but apparently the
directories for the NF7 are empty, sorry. :/

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
