As for Persmule, I've never had the need to use an ATX power supply, or
anything beyond the external BBB power supply and the two 3.3v
pins/holes on the BBB itself when flashing Chromebooks externally.
If the chip isn't being recognised, the most likely culprits are:
1. That you attached the clip the wrong way round.
2. The pins on the clip aren't making proper contact with the legs on
3. You've mis-wired the setup to begin with.
