:> Or get a working BIOS.
:Is that an answer?  "Sorry this is too hard to fix" is an answer, but
:other free operating systems seem to handle the BIOS fine.  Anyway,
:I'm not messing with the BIOS and the manufacturer's page does not

    No, that isn't an answer, Joerg should know better :-).

    We might not be able to address this for the release, it

    unconditionally programming at least the PCI chipsets
    will solve the BIOS mapping issues.
