Basically if you can't ID a chip, you can't write to it either.
I'll try some more computers I have access to. If I find one which _does_ get the ID correctly I know it's a problem with the board and not with the chips themselves.
Some board vendors, Asus is known to be one of them, secure their boards from "flash viruses" (did they mean linuxbios?) with additional GPIO linux This kind of stuff requires reverse engineering (which was legal in Germany last time I had to do this) or a loooot of patience talking to sales reps.
Can some of the programs in util/ be used to find out whether or not such GPIOs could be in place?
