Well, that's what I started with in the flashing business :-)

Yes - I actually used the X7DBT-INF variant, which has a Mellanox MT25204AD-FCC-D chip on-board. This InfiniBand chip is evidently outside the purview of the BIOS.  There is just one manual for {X7DBT,X7DGT}{,-INF}. The BIOS reports just the base variant (as shown), and is the same for these four boards.

	"The X7DBT/X7DBT-INF supports the 5000P Chipset, and the X7DGT/X7DGT-INF supports the 5000X chipset"
