Hello! Would one of you good people please provide something so that I may examine this "jetway" board? A link for example would be very helpful.

Have three motherboards running cn700, VT8237 chips set. All three boards have W39V040BPZ bios chips. I can not program them with flashrom. Flashrom see the chip as W39V040B. Flashrom start on the flash and just sits there. When flashed with the -V option I can see the memory address is not changing. But, big problem is the fact that the chip does get a bit flashed, as, I can no longer boot. So there is something happening. Looking at the data sheet for the W39V040B, all the PZ gives me is the PLCC package and lead free. So, is this a problem with the vt8237 south bridge? Where should I go to start debugging? -Adam
This is the jetway board? Hop into the factory BIOS, under Miscellaneous, and disable "Flash Write Protect". I've been flashing mine with the exact same chipset and flash part for months now, without any problems.
