My google searches came up with nothing.  Perhaps you should try to go
about it by finding out what mainboard mfg it is and trying to find
some specs on it.  A lot of time they will list the flash size and
sometimes the actual part.

Attempting to flash a board that you don't have physical access to
seems pretty bold.
