Yes, tell us what you do about the other (non-host) firmware components
in your flash chip (e.g. Firmware Descriptor, ME Firmware). And the tool
(command line if you use flashrom) you use to flash. Often the culprit
is a broken descriptor.

If you are sure that everything in the flash chip is perfectly fine (to
be sure, ME firmware should be a fresh image that wasn't ever altered
during runtime (ME does that), i.e. not a dump of an ever run firmware),
I'd suggest to remove all power, take a break, eat a Pizza or watch a
movie and try again later.


PS. Please stop top posting (i.e. replying above the original message).
    If there is anything in the original message that you refer to,
    reply below it. Also, please don't send HTML messages. Your MUA
    somehow generates an additional text version that is less readable
    (e.g. lots of empty lines).
