should have been with the 975s too.
" Not all boards can be reverted to earlier versions of the BIOS."
"This may occur when trying to revert from a BIOS version CO96510J.86A.5595 or newer to BIOS version
CO96510J.86A.5493 or earlier. BIOS recovery to the earlier version may be attempted. "
May? "may" is used 10 times in the article. Sounds like WJC tap-dancing what the meaning of "is" *is*.
Reads better if one substitues "oops" for each instance of "may".
problem not solved.

you can not downgrade past a BIOS version in which the AMT was updated, sorry. And yes teh XBX is an earlier version
So. The solution is to recompile the correct (older/good) .bio to spoof a newer rev number. think?
how to? the ITK stuff isn't being helpful. It boils down to a dumb problem vs a dumb chip against
an allegedly air-tite cmos.
so. How 2 spoof?
note: if the XBX is "older" than the XBX2; why is all the XBX2 stuff mapped on the mother board
but the components not mounted?
