hi !

i tryed to flash a tyan bios but he was 2kB longer from the bios that i read with  flashrom.

I use dd to make it fit in 1MB.

But now i can't flash because there is a write protection.

On a forum i have seen that you should link pin 7 and 32 of the rom chip.

this disable write protection.

So flashrom was able to write, but did stop at 0xF000.

Now my motherboard dont boot anymore.

I'am buying a chip + a plcc32 socket on ebay.

I will try again when i receive the chip, because it is very interessant !

Read of bios work very well, write not because of the write protection.
