I just wanted to say thanks and report that I just successfully flashed
the BIOS of my brand-new mainboard Supermicro X7SPA-HF¹ using flashrom.
After wasting a whole evening trying to make a 4MB BIOS image fit onto a
(virtual) floppy, I stumbled upon flashrom again and, without much
thought, decided to give it a try. I tried reading the current BIOS
first and after that worked I flashed the file X7SPA0.526 from the
current zip download. I ignored the message that erasing is untested and
another one that suggested that a single block or something like that
couldn't be eraed. After five minutes of waiting I became a little bit
nervous, but two or three minutes later flashrom was finished and I
could reboot successfully.
Thanks for the report, we marked the board as supported.
Just to make sure -- the board booted fine after the flashing _and_ it
had the new BIOS image on it (BIOS version increased)?
If possible, could you please re-try the latest version from svn and
send the write logs (use -V and -w)?
