I am sending this report after successful flashing to latest BIOS with
flashrom tool and as per carldani(irc name) recommendation.
<carldani> debianguy: To add your board to the list, we need some more
info (just to make sure we can exactly identify the board later).
[20:28] <debianguy> <carldani> :What info is needed.
[20:28] <carldani> debianguy: Could you send the output of "lspci
-nnvvvxxx" and a short success report (preferably also with the logs you
posted here), and exact name/revision/vendor of your mainboard to
[20:29] <carldani> debianguy: Oh, and if you have superiotool installed,
"superiotool -deV" output would be really nice to have as well.
I have a 2.5 year Old Desktop PC with Asus P5GC-MX/1333 Motherboard(Intel
945GC Chipset).Asus website verifies this Motherboard By asking to Check the
Motherboard Physically(on the Centre) to Read "Version 3.xx" For
P5GC-MX/1333 Board.There is another board *P5GC-MX* which may not be
confused with *P5GC-MX/1333*.
The Version of BIOS was 0312 Which was pretty old.the latest Version is
0413 to which I successfully Updated.
My PC's MAC Address has changed after the flashing Procedure ,resulting in
renaming of eth0 to eth1 .This warning was also shown:
Flash image seems to be a legacy BIOS. Disabling checks.
Writing flash chip... Erasing flash before programming... Erasing flash
chip... *spi_block_erase_20 failed during command execution at address 0x0
Verifying flash... VERIFIED.
Apart from that Flashing Procedure went fine.
Since there are few other BIOS releases between 0312 and 0413 ,I have
updated to intermediate version(0317) ,later on to Update to 0413(and I
think this step is not really needed).
Flashrom Version in Debian Repo is not the latest.So ,I built a debian
package for My use to get latest version*0.9.2-r1043 .*
Here are the Outputs, Logs of the Flashing Procedure ,Hoping this
Motherboard Enters the supported list.
*Output of "lspci -nnvvxxx" :*
*Output of :**"superiotool -deV":*
flashrom version used: *flashrom_0.9.2-r1043* (latest snapshot debian
package custom built)
superiotool on Debian:
Maintainer: Uwe Hermann <uwe(a)debian.org>
And I want to Convey My Thanks to This Project.I was contemplating on using
AFUDOS utility with freedos and memdisk(syslinux) and was not really
sure.flashrom turned out to be a great tool.Appreciations and Respect.
