Hello flashrom people,

here is a quick success report on using flashrom with the MS-7368 
(revision 1.0; I don't believe there are any later revisions, but I'm 
not sure). The exact flashrom version used was v0.9.1, SVN revision 

In particular, I first upgraded the BIOS from version 1.9 to 1.10 (named 
1.A on the MSI website), then downgraded to 1.7 and re-upgraded to 1.8 
and finally to 1.10 again, with a reboot following each flashing. I also 
played around with a few of the flashrom options and everything worked 
flawlessly OOTB.

Some details:

# ./flashrom -r ...

Probably nothing more to add, except that flashrom absolutely rocks :)

Thanks and kudos,
