    I see. I think you may be able to cure this problem with my program,
    adding corrected values in addition to write to 0x11 should do the
    trick. 93c46 is 16-bit, little-endian here. You'd have to divide the
    addresses shown by the dump by 2 of course.
    I'd make sure the values are ok before rebooting, there is some
    possibility a badly corrupted EEPROM may prevent BIOS from starting.

    I think I'd leave GUID (16-bit words at 0, 1, 2, 3) and PCI subsystem
    IDs (words at 0xA and 0xB) unchanged, and for all other locations I'd
    fill in the 6307 values.

    Of course I don't know if the program will be able to write to VT6306,
    so I'd test the broken card first.

    The difference is of course at 0x0E, not 0x1E. Maybe the byte at 0x0A
    is 0x92 for 4 IR contents and 0xA2 for 8 contents. That would also
    make sense wrt the broken 6306 as it has 0x00 there.
