Qing Pei is right, no hardware modification necessary. I started a page on
the MA785GMT-UD2H that explains how to recover from an unbootable M_BIOS, by
using the B_BIOS feature. It boils down to shorting pins 4 (GND) and 7
(#HOLD) on the M_BIOS chip for a few seconds on cold boot, and then releasing
the short.
