is limited to 320x240x8 or 640x480x4 (from my experience with EPIA-M 10K).

I feel I am facing same problem. Any solution? I have been using EPIA-MII 1.2GHz.
BTW, you tried both cold boot ( power off, wait a minite, then power on to boot)
and hot? boot( just push reset button).

As my experiment, cold boot does not work, but this way works.
1. you boot with normal bios.
2. switch a bios to lx2, with RD1 bios savior.
3. push reset button.
