That was beat to death too: you can't do it. If you'd like to try,
I have a "nice" Cirrus Logic clgd5430 card you can try to restore.
Yeah, sure you can use DOSEMU on your wonderful card. We're all
happy for you, and would love to have a card like yours. I can even
hit the reset button and boot into an OS with official drivers,
but it doesn't do any good. Only the big red switch works.
