Currently I have no idea how to repair my system. Folks at #flashrom pointed me to here.
Well above desperation is over. Last Friday I traded my chip with one of Idwer's pre-flashed chips, whom was extremely kind in helping me. Since a couple of days I inserted the chip and the system woke up like the sleeping beauty. :)
Many thanks to all helping me via this list, IRC and IRL.
@Idwer: Have you tried my old bioschip yet, did it work on your system?
I finally found (and took) the time to mess with your chip.
Using flashrom r883, probing, reading and writing your chip works; erasing is work in progress (Sean ?).
Luc: the chip itself doesn't appear to be broken because writing a 512KB file created with dd from /dev/zero and reading it back, then comparing the empty and readout file with md5sum shows that the files are identical (ergo empty) -- yes, I saved the original content.

Wow, this i had never expected.
There should be no issue with this board; the board enable is the chipset enable. There was no issue with previous instances of this board.
I am stumped myself, i think carldani had some ideas.
Can you send me, personally, the image that you read from the chip?
