Do you know how to identify a board without this fix vs one with the
fix? Where does the resistor go?
It is likely in a high EMI environment, although the EMI shouldn't have
changed from a month ago when everything was stable. In particular my
WRAP board is not in a shielded enclosure.

That would be helpful. I was wondering where to get the latest BIOS,
they don't seem to offer it on their website.
