I think so, the components are supported AFAIK.

Please post the output of 'lspci -tvnn' and 'superiotool -dV' from the board.

Also, is your BIOS chip in a socket or soldered on the board? Please
also run 'flashrom -V' to check if flashrom supports your board (and
post the output here).

If you have a backup/spare BIOS chip you can try flashing the epia-m
target and see how it goes. Do _not_ do this if you don't have a
verified backup ROM chip with your original vendor BIOS!

HTH, Uwe.
