Yes I think that is the most aggressive one, and maybe a bit of
investigation on the second plcc socket will be funny.

Your HowTo is very helpful for me, and I had read it a few times, but
first of all I need to save my ass (jiji) finding the way of socketing
the bios, so my efforts will be in this direction, If I couldn't have
access to the desoldering station I will try it without "life-guard".

So as I am writting to ST, I will put a bit of time to the second socket.

Thanks and best regards.
