JSPI1 is a 5×2 or 6x2 2.0mm pitch pin header on many MSI motherboards. It is used to recover from bad boot ROM images. Specifically, it appears to be used to connect an alternate ROM with a working image. Pull the #HOLD line low to deselect the onboard SPI ROM, allowing another SPI ROM to take its place on the bus. Pull the #WP line high to disable write-protection.
