differed only in those regions below 0x190000, so it might have
successfully written to the entire 0x0-0x4BFFF (or even higher) space.
The terms executable and data region are not very accurate. The ME
region (0x00001000 - 0x0018ffff) is executed by the embedded controller
embedded in the PCH.
The ROM image that I was writing had changes in the
volume starting at 0x190000.
This contradicts what you wrote in the first paragraph (but is in line
with the log).
These were not written to the ROM.
I have successfully rebooted and can reflash via external SPI if
necessary for further tests.
This is expected behavior, hence the warning and need to the override -
no further tests necessary. Your command line looks wrong regarding the
needed force switch, but if there was a bug it is fixed now AFAICS.
Thanks for your report I'll add the system to our list with an
