Indeed, it looks like it won't work. I too was misled by the part list under 3. Those are only examples of chips that will work as boot ROMs once flashed/programmed externally.
This is what is says EPROM wise:
2. Or you can program RPl ROM image into the EPROM using EPROM program machine.
I thought EPROM/EEPROM/flash was more or less the same thing, but that's not true.
From what I understand, EPROMs are "dumb" and have to be programmed byte by byte, and these devices don't support that.
Root42, what was the part number of the chip you programmed/flashed?
I guess I'll just set those EPROMs aside when they arrive in case I ever buy an actual programmer.
I don't think this particular card is worth the effort/investment right now.
One more thing I got wrong in my post, I didn't get the part number from OP's card (it's covered by stickers), but from VGA museum.
