Hello Sebastian,

thanks for your report!

The problem is the locked ME region as quoted above. We are working on
unlocking it, but intel does not provide us any documentation so please
do not expect a solution soon.

I have added the board to our list of (un)supported boards (with an
appropriate note) and will commit that later together with other small

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
