Indeed; I've never soldered/desoldered anything in my life. I thought
that Flashrom was used to get Coreboot onto the board. I clearly
misunderstand the purpose of Flashrom if physical modification is also
needed. If that's specific to the M2A-VM perhaps I should look for a
different Micro ATX board with which I can use Flashrom. Suggestions?
