I also had to bl**dy register with the forum. Those two pdf's just show
photo's, so for plain wiring no one bothered to draw any schematics
I guess it is pretty much established, that it's all about two plcc in
parallel with #CE activated individually. not that difficult after all.
using a flip over socket avoids cutting the #CE line on the mobo if
there is no chipset output driving those 2 #CE signals.
the Gigabyte patent also includes the firmware procedure to verify flash
content and to automatically select a valid chip without user intervention.
maybe one day they ship M57's with full dual bios : one legacy and the
other LinuxBIOS activated by default YEAH ! :-) --Q
