Thanks Alex and I've tried BootUtil - but no luck. I've read the
discription of BootUtil thanks to your link and found an important
* BootUtil is not intended as a utility for LAN-On-Motherboard (LOM)
implementations. Adjustments made to BootROM settings on LOM
implementations may not affect how the adapter operates.
And well this nic which i was trying to flash is a LOM. So i guess there
will be no chance to flash it.

flashrom supports a lot of different programmers and types of flash
chips. You have to be much more specific with your question, otherwise
the answer is simply: the source code explains everything in detail.

flashing in-system (ISP) is sometimes a very delicate procedure. How
and if it will work, depends on many things: 1. is the board designed
for ISP; if, follow the manual; if not 2. how do you power the flash
chip? through the board's regular power supply (strongly advised)? or
through the ch341a (discouraged unless you know exactly what you are
doing)? 3. are all input pins of the flash chip in a defined state?
(e.g. don't forget /HOLD and /WP). See also  and .

Regarding ISP, the board the chip is soldered to matters more than the
chip. What board is it?
Hope that helps,
I'm trying to read from and flash to a W25X40ALSNIG  that's still
mounted to its hard drive PCB. Following the table from the raspberry pi
wiki page , and assuming the raspberry pi pin numbers it mentions are
physical pin numbers (and not the pi's strange GPIO numbering scheme) I
connected the legs of the flash chip to the raspberry pi's GPIO pins.
However, when the two are attached, the pi won't boot (it'll show the three
raspberries in the corner, then it shuts off). I've isolated this to the
VCC (connected to header 17, 3v3) and GND (connected to header 25, GND) ,
where having all of the legs of the flash chip detached from the pi except
for those two will reproduce my problem (I hope testing that didn't
actually kill the chip). What am I missing?
