OK, that's good so far. Now you'd need to verify that actually _writing_
a BIOS image works (or not) on the board.

Have you done that? If not, please make sure you have a backup chip
in case something goes wrong. You can try writing the vendor's BIOS
(e.g. from the website) via flashrom, that should tell you if it works.
