Sure, BusType PCI disables AGP. So you need to test different values for
Option "AGPMode" without Option "BusType".

The log file from the original report shows 4x being used. The default
is to leave it unchanged from what the firmware set it up to, with the
exception of known hardware combinations where only other values work.

So, your table is a little confusing... please just try all AGP transfer
rates and see if any of them works.
