Cool. Can you send lspci from a running system?

Not possible. DualBIOS is a software thingy that Gigabyte seem to
market rather loudly.

There are pads for a second flash chip on the rev 1 board though, so
maybe you can reverse engineer the schematics for the board enough to
make a dual flash chip mod similar to the on for M57SLI. Then you
have a physical switch, anything else is just not very useful.

The other option is to swap pushpinflash (chips with glued on plastic
knob) back and forth - works fine too. :)
