Since i have no idea what are you two talking about, im attaching the link to the current BIOS datasheet (which shows the current BIOS has a 2MB flash size, if i understand this correctly) : http://www.datasheetcatalog.org/datasheet/stmicroelectronics/8499.pdf

Are you sure it's SPI?

No EEPROM/flash device found.
If you know which flash chip you have, and if this version of
supports a similar flash chip, you can try to force read your chip.
flashrom -f -r -c similar_supported_flash_chip filename
Note: flashrom can never write when the flash chip isn't found
The above note is sadly not a joke.

AFAIK, flashrom is broken for most ICHx.
Not so, it works very well on a whole bunch of them.

Your flash chip is not supported. I'll add code for it.
Some info Carl-Daniel didn't post, maybe it is informative;
It seems that the system has a Winbond W25B40 or W25B40A flash chip.
This is an SPI flash chip, but it seems to behave just like a FWH
While waiting for Carl-Daniel you can try the attached patch. I doubt
it will work but you never know.
