That's a common problem - Phoenix adds board and (in later revisions of
their flashing tools) flash-chip specific code to the ROM image. If the
image is to be written by phlash16.exe or winphlash, just cut the 1st MB
to use it with flashrom.

Please not that flashrom does not know about layouts of commercial
BIOSses and clears all information like serial numbers, MAC adresses (if
stored in the main BIOS ROM), Windows Activation certificates and event
logs when writing the new image, whereas the vendor tool knows how to
keep it.
