I recall from an IBM laptop I flashed a while back that you need to set the drive to a region before flashing it to rpc1. Is this common? What would be the technical explanation for it?
In addition, does anyone see a downside to the "auto-reset" FW's? I'm now debating btwn flashing with a "true" rpc1 or with a rpc2 that resets itself each startup. From what I read on Etna's page this avoids my having to use DVD-Genie or the like.
