Hello it seems my motherboard isn't really supported... Can you add support for my board please ?
Certainly.. run and attach the output of 'lspci -nnvvvxxx' (as root). Beware that writing, when a board enable is applied, trashes the LOM MAC address: http://www.flashrom.org/pipermail/flashrom/2012-March/009017.html
I'm wiLling to help if i can (linux noob here).
I DID: flashrom -p internal -w P5V0701.ROM ON : flashrom v0.9.6.1-r1564 on Linux 3.7.10-1-ARCH (i686)
TERMINAL SAID: Calibrating delay loop... OK. Found chipset "VIA VT8237A". Enabling flash write... OK. Found SST flash chip "SST49LF040B" (512 kB, LPC) at physical address 0xfff80000. Flash image seems to be a legacy BIOS. Disabling coreboot-related checks. Reading old flash chip contents... done. Erasing and writing flash chip... ERASE FAILED at 0x00014000! Expected=0xff, Read=0x17, failed byte count from 0x00014000-0x00014fff: 0xfe7 ERASE FAILED! Reading current flash chip contents... done. ERASE FAILED at 0x00010000! Expected=0xff, Read=0x17, failed byte count from 0x00010000-0x0001ffff: 0xfee5 ERASE FAILED! FAILED! Uh oh. Erase/write failed. Checking if anything changed. Good. It seems nothing was changed. Writing to the flash chip apparently didn't do anything. This means we have to add special support for your board, programmer or flash chip. Please report this on IRC at irc.freenode.net (channel #flashrom) or mail email@example.com!
