How do you know? The log you have sent does not indicate that. If you
have another one (too), please send that as well.

WARNING! You seem to be running flashrom on an unsupported laptop.
Laptops, notebooks and netbooks are difficult to support and we
recommend to use the vendor flashing utility. The embedded controller
(EC) in these machines often interacts badly with flashing.
See the manpage and http://www.flashrom.org/Laptops for details.
If flash is shared with the EC, erase is guaranteed to brick your laptop
and write may brick your laptop.
Read and probe may irritate your EC and cause fan failure, backlight
failure and sudden poweroff.
You have been warned.
Error: Programmer initialization failed.

Sorry, but flashrom will not be able to help you with this, these are
questions you should be asking Adaptec/Silicon Image. Maybe see if
Silicon Image has a generic SIL3112 firmware/driver available?
