Mystery things do not stop. Now I succeeded when flashing the original
BIOS with the patched version as one can see by flashrom's output:

flashrom v0.9.1-r845 (patched)
No coreboot table found.
Found chipset "AMD SB700/SB710/SB750", enabling flash write... OK.
This chipset supports the following protocols: LPC,FWH,SPI.
Calibrating delay loop... OK.
Found chip "SST SST25VF016B" (2048 KB, SPI) at physical address 0xffe00000.
This flash part has status UNTESTED for operations: ERASE
Please email a report to flashrom at flashrom.org if any of the above operations
work correctly for you with this flash part. Please include the flashrom
output with the additional -V option for all operations you tested (-V, -rV,
-wV, -EV), and mention which mainboard or programmer you tested. Thanks for your help!
Flash image seems to be a legacy BIOS. Disabling checks.
Writing flash chip... Erasing flash before programming... done.
Verifying flash... VERIFIED.

A verification by reading the BIOS (via flashrom -r <file>) and comparing it with
the original bios (via diff) shows the NO difference.

For now I think we can say good night. But I would be very pleased if we fix
the problem tomorrow. The original job to flash a new bios isn't done up to
now ...
