First off, can't do this. You must have a fallback image, normal is

This is exactly as it says. In src/mainboard/via/epia-m/Config.lb, there
should be an XIP_ROM_SIZE and XIP_ROM_BASE, the base must be a multiple
of the size. I had a bit of trouble working around this myself at one
point, I think I determined that I just couldn't have a VGA rom and only
the fallback boot, having both seemed to straighten things out.
