Yep. If you have a null-modem cable (for serial debug output) and a
second, compatible flash chip, the tool to remove the chip and replace
it with another one, and if you're willing to test patches, please let
us know. We can provide you patches which will probably work after
one or two tries...

First steps, can you please run 'superiotool -dV' on the box? Also,
is your BIOS chip in a socket? Is it a PLCC chip? (see website for details).

Then, post 'lspci -nn' and 'lspnp -v' if possible.

Thanks, Uwe.
