Look for the flash chip(s). Probably near the ATX power connector, 8-pin
chips, usually with a small colored dot and/or a sticker on top of them.
If you peel off the sticker (if any), you should see the manufacturer
and model number (probably 25...). Maybe you can find someone to solder
a socket in place.
