Attached is the output from "flashrom -V" as the output requested.
I backed up the running BIOS with AFUDOS and flashrom getting different
sum values under fedora 18.
$ sum *.ROM
19558 4096 SGIBIOS.ROM
$ sum *.rom
16753 4096 MX25L3205A.rom
I'm getting ready to flash over the SGI BIOS with the latest Supermicro
and I'm worried about using flashrom instead of AFUDOS.
Let me know if anyone is interested in helping my efforts.
I tested flashrom on an Attro G5G100-P industrial board.
Reading and writing the original BIOS were successful, both with the original
chip and a spare PLCC chip.
The logs are attached.
remotely flashed, rebooted and worked

Q: Because it reverses the logical flow of conversation.
A: Why is putting a reply at the top of the message frowned upon?
Hi, Just to let you know I successfully flashed a GA-970A-D3P Motherbaord from Bios version F3 to F5 using flashrom v0.9.6.1-r1563 on Linux 3.11.0-17-generic (x86_64)
In the attached file GA-970A-D3P.tgzis the output of:
flashrom -p internal -V

You have listed as a supported mainboard the x7spa-hf, it turns out
there is a very similar board that also works, the x7spe-hf-d525.
I just wanted to write to you to let you know so you could update your
supported mainboard page.
