This is a very old version of flashrom.  Can you please download and try 
the latest?  Then try writing the original rom back with the newer 
flashrom.  This may restore the bits that were written by the old flashrom.

It is likely that you will need a "board enable" in order to write to 
your entire chip.  Please reply with the output of `lspci -vvvnnxxx' and 
`superiotool -deV' both as root.  Oh, and the output of the newer 
`flashrom -V' .
