I did read about SerialICE, but didnt get anywhere because the laptop 
doesnt have serial ports. (and havent found one on the board, tho 
dmidecode names one)
I'll get some flash chips and keep looking.

Area the minipci/minipcie diagnostic cards useful with coreboot/seabios ?

PS : Perhaps the vgarom doesnt work well because it is a PCIe card.
