Yes, it appears that for v130 it is 0xff in the first 164d0 bytes.  Looking at
v300, it is 0xff in the first 15f58, and trying with other factory BIOS images
yeilds similar results (0xff in the first N bytes).

I have not yet issued a write in the ORG position, only read and verify.  I
erased the Pm49FL004 flash part present in the BIOS Savior, not the onboard

I have two of these boards to work with, however, so I'm not averse to bricking
one as I can always hotswap.
