Re: Can read PCI config space, but not normal space o-n one motherboard?

No, it isn't the same address. That's why I read the Base Address Register
first. Is there any other way of doing it? I thought that step was
required for PCI devices.

> Alternatively, is it also available in I/O space?

Nope.

Another piece of data, though: It turns out that it works fine on the "bad"
motherboard if I ENABLE Plug-and-Play in the BIOS (which we disable by
default). Since the only PNP devices in the system are some "legacy" ISA
devices that have only fixed I/O at location 0x100, I don't see how that
causes any issue. But that's clearly the path I have to go down now...
