In the context of training the Nicaraguan team to do motherboard replacements, we need to transfer manufacturing data from known good laptops to the replacement motherboards. save-mfg-data is presenting some difficulties here.
Reproduced on XO-1.5 with Q3B13 and Q3B23.
Firstly, because it uses disk:\ rather than u:\, the USB disk must be connected before the system is turned on. Using u:\ would be a little nicer for these users.
Secondly, the bigger issue is that it doesnt work, fails with "spi! <-deferred word not initialized" and creates a 0 byte file.
