Asus were unable to find a product sample with the affected behaviour.
They did provide us with one from the list I had made, but with a
newer BIOS version where that behaviour has been eliminated. They also
advised that always setting bit 7 is the way they do it on Windows. So
I don't think we have the opportunity for extra verification, but it
should be safe.
