Following "new to coreboot", briefly, coreboot.rom compiled OK but uniflash filed to load it; however it was able to reload my original saved image.
Leaving uniflash for now, I can get an OS running here, enough to load flashrom from "utilities" in the download- but I note from http://www.coreboot.org/MSI_MS-6178_Build_Tutorial that flashrom is a "no". Does that mean that the coreboot.rom was written to the chip away from the MS6178 board & that flashrom cannot flash the chip from the board itself?
Flashrom might be able to read the current contents of the ROM chip on this board, but it will not be able to _write_ a correct image onto the chip. There's likely some board-specific write-enable required, but this is not yet supported and also non-trivial to find out (never documented).
