I flashed my bios with flashrom tonight and got the scary warning message saying "erase failed" and "do not reboot".
I haven't rebooted.
As far as I can tell from using flashrom itself, everything is actually fine. The erase appears to have failed at physical address 0, which I would guess means that nothing actually happened.
I had taken a dump of the original bios before starting, and "flashrom -v" now verifies that it is identical.
Furthermore, a new dump of the bios matches the original dump from before I tried to write the bios.
My board is an MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum.
Output from my dump attempt and subsequent messing around follows.
Do I have your blessing to reboot my machine?
