Sorry for missing you guys earlier. It works.

Note that this is an EP-9NPa7I. But eh whatever.


flashrom v0.9.3-r1338 on Linux 2.6.38-8-generic (x86_64), built with libpci
3.1.7, GCC 4.5.2, little endian
flashrom is free software, get the source code at http://www.flashrom.org

Calibrating delay loop... delay loop is unreliable, trying to continue OK.
Found chipset "NVIDIA CK804", enabling flash write... OK.
This chipset supports the following protocols: Non-SP.
Disabling flash write protection for board "EPoX EP-8NPA7I"... OK.
Found chip "SST SST49LF004A/B" (512 kB, FWH) at physical address 0xfff80000.
Flash image seems to be a legacy BIOS. Disabling coreboot-related checks.
Erasing and writing flash chip... Done.
Verifying flash... VERIFIED.
