I'm aware of this. Without the VGA BIOS Blob I just would have no

I did this, patching and installing of flashrom went fine.
But now I have the following:

tim at tim-ThinkPad-X60s:~/flash$ sudo flashrom -p internal -r factory.bin
flashrom v0.9.6.1-r1675 on Linux 3.2.0-38-generic-pae (i686)
flashrom is free software, get the source code at http://www.flashrom.org

Calibrating delay loop... delay loop is unreliable, trying to continue OK.
Found chipset "Intel ICH7M". Enabling flash write... WARNING: SPI 
Configuration Lockdown activated.
